PLAY DAYS AT ARTSY:  Whaaaat????? FREE play days in your Happy Place? YEP!!  True story.   We’ve opened up our classroom tables on certain days so you really spread out and work on that “UFO” (UnFinished Object).  OR, if you wanna acquire some new toys at Artsy and then break into them immediately and be creative, then this time is for you!  We’ve added quite a few extra dates this month so you can bring in your remaining holiday projects and enjoy some non-interrupted time to finish them up – or simply be creative with other people.  Bring a friend or two and play in the Artsy Classroom.  Play Days have caught on in the last few months so plan now to come in on one or all NINE dates in December from 10am-5pm each day (Noon-4pm on Sundays).  Bring your basic kit with you as supplies are not included, but you can purchase anything while you’re there – that’s also one of the best perks about play days at Artsy.  Sunday 12/1, Thursday 12/5, Tuesday 12/10, Friday 12/13, Saturday 12/14, Sunday 12/15, Tuesday 12/17, Thursday 12/19 and Saturday 12/21 from 10am-5pm each day (except on Sundays which are Noon-4pm).   FREE!  No reservations necessary, just bring your stuff and settle in for the day.


HOLIDAY POP UP SLIDER CARDS:  Join Teresa in creating these fun and unique gift cards that “pop up & slide” to reveal that last minute “I don’t know what they want” or the “oh my gosh, I didn’t have time to shop” gift for that certain someone on your Christmas list (your know who they are). Not only will the recipient delight in the gift card, but the extraordinary presentation is sure to be a crowd pleaser! BONUS craft to compliment these cards to be revealed in class (Merry Christmas!).

 CLASS POLICIES
***Classes start promptly at the time listed.  Please have your lovely buns in the seat and be ready to go!    Showing up late is very disruptive to the class that is already in progress.  Plan ahead for traffic or other things that might slow you down!  

If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to get into another class.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will forfeit your class fee. 
Classes must be paid for at the time of registration.  You are not considered registered unless a class is paid for which could affect your seat in those classes with student limits.  You may pay with cash, check or use a credit card with a $2 handling fee.  You may register over the phone and mail in a check or give us a credit card number.  

We also assume you're taking a class to enjoy a break for a few hours and learn some cool stuff without interruptions.  That said, we will now begin each class by asking you to turn off your cell phones or silence them during class.  This will enhance everyone's learnin' and enjoyment of the class at hand.

Thank you in advance for understanding.  If you have problems or questions about these policy updates, please see Patsy.
