Studio Policy

Kenai Art Studio is a teaching studio offering classical drawing and painting lessons. 

Students are asked to listen and follow directions and be focused for long periods of time.

Students must be comfortable communicating with instructors and peers. 

People with attention difficulties or students with a medical or learning difference must contact studio prior to enrolling. 

By registering for classes at Kenai Art Studio, Students and their parents agree to the terms and conditions.


Your spot in the class or program of your choice will be saved only upon registration and payment. Payment and Registration are only processed if there is room in the course. Upon registration and payment, Kenai Art Studio will confirm your registration in the class of your choice. If you sign up for a class that is already full, we will place you on our waiting list and advise you towards another class that suits your needs and creative interests. Because we value personal connection with our students, our classes within the studio have a maximum student capacity so that we can keep our classes small and offer personal attention to each student.

Full payment is required in order to reserve a spot in the class or program of your choice. We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, as well as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express via our online payment link on our website. All checks must be drawn on US funds. There is a $50 charge for returned checks.

Although course cancellation at Kenai Art Studio is quite rare, Kenai reserves the right to cancel classes or change instructor assignments and makes every effort to notify students in advance. If enrollment goals are not met, a course may be cancelled up to 48 hours before the first scheduled class. In the event of cancellation, a full refund or credit is granted. On occasion, a course start-date will be pushed back if enrollment goals are not met. In this instance, you will receive a credit for the price of the class that did not take place.

We provide most of materials for the class and the cost is included in your class price. If we are doing a special project, we might ask the parents to bring additional materials. Works in progress (wet canvases or large paper) may remain at our studio between weekly sessions with your name on it.
