Types of Lessons

Thank you for choosing High Tide Art School. We offer 4 options for you:
private lessons,
regular on-going classes,
special online courses and

Private lessons.Confirm your date, time, and rate by email info@hightideartschool.com in advance. Please be on time. Your lesson starts and ends as scheduled. Your late coming is not a reason for extending your lesson. If you come too early we may not be able to start your lesson earlier. In case of no-show without 24-hour notice, we will have to charge you in full.

Regular on-going classes. Registration required. No drop-ins. Due to COVID-19 all students must be registered. All lessons must be prepaid at least 24 hours before the class. Missed lessons will not be refunded. We may be able to arrange make-up classes, provided you notified us about your not-coming 24 hours in advance. Please be on time. Classes start and end as scheduled. Due to reinforced safety procedures, all students must enter and leave the time scheduled, so we have time to clean and sanitize our studio.

Special online courses. A course must be prepaid in full before the start date. If you change your plans, a full refund can be issued if claimed at least 7 days BEFORE the start date. A $20 cancellation fee will be charged. No refunds 7 days before a course start date and later. Missed lessons will not be refunded. However, if we have the same course running at a later time you can always come and make up sessions at no charge.

Workshops. A full amount must be paid 24-hours before the workshop date. No refunds or credits.


Payment Methods. Normally, we invoice all our clients on-line and require prepay classes with a credit card. If you’d like to pay in person, at the studio we accept credit cards and cash.

Time of payment. If not specified, all payments must be complete 24-hours before the class/lesson date.

Parents of all students of 18 years old and younger MUST sign Liability Waiver, Pick Up Authorization, and Emergency and Medical forms. They will be emailed to you at the time of registration.
