BE KIND. SHOW RESPECT. DRESS FOR A MESS. CLEAN UP. HAVE FUN.
What should I wear?
Please wear clothes prepared to play in and make a mess in. Closed toed shoes are always preferred. Many of the materials used in the studio are messy and some paints used do not come out in the wash very easily. We have aprons here at the studio to use, which can help, but not all kids like to wear them and we don’t force them to wear them.
Should I bring food/drink?
Yes! While it’s not necessary to bring food in for our weekly classes, we encourage you to eat a healthy snack before coming in. For all other workshops/camps please bring a snack/lunch of healthy food (please avoid junk food like soda and candy) and water. Water bottles are encouraged! We have filtered water available that you can fill your water bottle with to avoid using single use plastic waste.
Is it really drop off? My child isn’t comfortable with me leaving.
In short, it is really drop off. We will work with you and your child to encourage healthy goodbyes, and I promise you, I will not keep a child at the studio who doesn’t want to be there. Occasionally, we have a hard time at the goodbye time and there are tears, but it usually only lasts 2 minutes. If you don’t feel comfortable leaving your child, perhaps you can wait until you both are okay with it. We do not have space for parents to wait on-site during classes, there is a beautiful walking beach just a few blocks away or small shops nearby to check out.
Also, a word about kids today….kids crave freedom in their lives. Many of them are over scheduled with performance based activities. In order to help with balance, we strive to create an environment that is not competitive or performance based, and my job working with your children is to help them walk out of my studio feeling better and proud of themselves for being capable to create in their own way. Often parents will try and control that freedom, and get in the way of children really being able to access the space it takes to unwind, relax and enjoy the process.
I know Cayce, I told her I wanted to sign up, do I really have to do this online?
Well yes. Times have changed, and online is where it is now. Although Cayce misses the days of her families casually saying they want in, those days are gone. When you sign up online, it keeps track of the proper headcount, the payment, the receipts to you etc. She has decided to spend as much time creating in her line of work and the ease of not handling that side of the business has allowed her to be more present as a creator and as a teacher. If you do not feel comfortable with signing up online, please call the studio to make special arrangements to sign up with check or cash. All workshops/camps need to be paid in full and in advance before the start date.
What happens if I sign up for a workshop/camp and cannot make it? Do I get my money back?
All purchases are final and nonrefundable. Check your dates carefully. We buy all the supplies, hire the help, and put a lot of time and energy into each of our workshops and camps Blue Apple offers. Summer Camps 2020 can be transferrable only if there is availability until April 30th 2020 or receive credit but there is a $50. Transfer fee.We do not give refunds. If you cancel a workshop before 2 weeks before the date of the workshop, you will get a credit minus a $50. Transfer fee.
Can I give my bought space to someone else if not able to make it?
Potentially yes, but you cannot do this without contacting the studio first and letting us know this is what you’d like to do. Many times there is a wait list to get in and we want to be as fair as possible.
Do siblings get a discount?
Yes we can work with you. Please call the studio ahead of signing up and we can help you.
