I'm An Artist Community Studio
Waiver and Consent Form
(Please check 'yes' via the registration process if you agree to these terms & please retain a copy for your records)
The following guidelines and expectations are in place for students and families to make the most of their time at I'm An Artist Community Studio
As this is an enrichment class, no mandatory attendance will be taken. However, when you register certain guidelines should be agreed upon and followed for the safety and consideration of your student, the class, and myself.
Each child will be checked in for each class by their guardian or designated person.
Guardians are responsible for reminding their children of class times as well as taking care of transportation and arrival.
Guardians, you are responsible for notifying me if your student will miss a class as soon as possible. This allows me to focus my attention on teaching the class and ensures your child’s safety.
Please be aware of what time class ends and make sure that you or your designated person are on time to pick up your child.
All children must be signed out within 5 minutes of the end of class for me to have time to prepare for the next class.
If you are going to be late, please notify me immediately through text, as it is the easiest way for me to see and respond quickly.
Parents or the designated person are responsible for signing students out and transportation from class. Transportation is not provided.
Children will be released only to adults unless otherwise discussed.
If your student will be using public transportation, please contact me regarding early dismissal if needed. (Bus 6-Eastown/Woodland runs in front of the studio)
Code of conduct:
Students are expected to maintain the same behavioral standards that they would have in the world operating as young adults.
Please understand that while this is an art class that is fun in nature, it is also a time for growth, observance, persistence, learning, creating, and pushing boundaries.
Respect for self and others is a must. I'm An Artist is a kind, gentle, and uplifting safe space and has a zero-tolerance policy against harassment and bullying of any sort.
Please talk with your child about the respectful and learning expectations before classes start. If disruptive behavior becomes an issue during class time, guardians will be contacted to make a behavior plan.
However, if the pattern continues, guardians will be contacted and the student may be removed from the class for the day.
No refunds will be provided.
In the event of a continual disruptive pattern, it will be discussed with the guardian as well as a conversation regarding removal from class.
No refunds will be provided.
Parents are responsible for providing a nut-free snack for their students. Children are welcome to snack as they need to as long as they aren't disruptive to class.
Guardians with students with severe allergies and/or medical conditions are responsible for contacting me to develop a formal health plan. I do not have access to medical supplies in the studio. Please send any epi-pens or other medication that might be needed with your student to each class and contact me directly about usage.
If your child has any special considerations you think I should know about, and some ways you've found to be helpful in their education please contact me to discuss a plan, if needed.
This information will not be shared and is only to best serve your child.
By agreeing to this form, guardians give permission for their children to participate in art classes at I'm An Artist Community Studios and give permission to the adult in charge to seek emergency medical treatment and/or transportation for their children to an emergency facility.
In the event of this occurrence, I'm An Artist Community Studio is released from any liability or financial obligation for said emergency treatments.
Backup Childcare Plans for Snow Days and Unforseens:
We live in Michigan where weather is always a factor, as well as other factors that we cannot control such as a power outage.
Please note that we will be following Kent County and East Grand Rapids in the calling of snow days. If Kent Co. or East Grand Rapids is listed on the news, it is assumed that conditions for travel are unsafe and we will not be holding any student classes for that day. I will email and post on social media if we are closing for the day.
If there is a two-hour delay for Kent or East Grand Rapids Schools, we will not have our morning class for that day, and lessons will be absorbed into the remaining class times.
Please have a backup plan in place in case either of these events occurs.
If I have a personal unforeseen emergency, I will contact everyone ASAP and lessons will be absorbed into the remaining class times. Please have a backup plan in place in case this occurs.
Please ensure your child’s safety and well-being by having a backup plan and communicating that plan to your child and the emergency contacts listed on your child’s registration form.
If either event occurs, there will be no refunds given. Class lessons will be absorbed into the remaining classes.
For safety and education purposes, class ratios are kept to a minimum. There will be times when two instructors are available in which case class sizes may increase.
By signing up for class, you are also granting permission to I'm An Artist Community Studio to take and publish photos on social media as well as for use in advertising.
We understand that life happens and sometimes we need to make adjustments. At I'm An Artist you may cancel your class with a refund up to 3 weeks before it begins, however after that point a credit toward another class within a year can be issued. There are no refunds after the 3-week point.
IN CONSIDERATION of being permitted to participate in any classes at I'm An Artist Community Studio, I, for myself, my child (and any personal representatives, assigns, heirs, and next of kin of myself or my child), acknowledge, agree and represent that: changes.
I UNDERSTAND (and in the future will ensure that I understand) the nature of the activities in which I register my child to participate, and I fully ASSUME all risk of, and responsibility for, determining my child’s eligibility and fitness to participate in such activities.
