Tumbleweeds Art Group Policies & Rules




Payments are made in two installments:

1-   September 10th 2015 and February 1st 2016 - the beginning of each semester which will go towards the first half of the semester. 1st installment is Non-refundable.

2-   November 16th 2015 and April 15th 2016- half way through the semester which will go towards the remaining half of the semesters. 2nd installment is Non-refundable.

Any late payments will result in a $15 late fee for each week that it is late. Joining an art group means you are making the commitment to the whole semester. The tuition for the whole semester is to be paid. There are no reimbursements, deductions or omissions made for absences, missed classes or withdrawal for any reason. Please read the make-up policy below for missed classes. There will be a $50 fee owed for any returned, bounced checks

*Tumbleweeds Art Group follows the NYC Department of Education’s School Calendar (for major holidays and school closures) in which class days and payment information will be based on.

*There is a non-refundable $200 deposit due (each semester) with the registration form. The $200 deposit will be held and go towards your balance left for the second installment. All deposits are due with the registration form. Your child’s spot is not saved or confirmed until Tumbleweeds Art group has received both the deposit and registration form.

If a child shows signs of illness (fever, wet cough, cold, lice etc.) please notify Tumbleweeds Art Group and kindly keep them home from class.

If your child receives after-school pick up and is showing signs of being ill at the time of pick up, as a precaution Tumbleweeds Art Group will bring them the school nurse to be quickly evaluated before leaving the school as well as calling the child's parent(s) to inform them of the situation.

If your child did not attend school that day please kindly keep them home from class as well.

On the occasion the teacher becomes sick and needs to cancel class we will first try to figure out a make-up class option and if that is not possible for the majority then refunds will be made.


Make-ups –

Each child will be allowed one make-up per semester for missed classes due to being sick.  All make-ups will be held in the form of a group art outing in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. One weekend date per semester will be set aside for the make-up art outing. On the occasion that class is cancelled due to weather related issues, the missed class will be held in the form of a make-up art outing on a weekend date agreed upon by the majority of the group. Up to 2 times per semester. The parent must schedule a make-up in advance and it is the parent’s responsibility to arrange transportation, as pick-up/drop-off is not available for a make-up. Tumbleweeds will not provide make-ups for days missed due to personal holidays taken etc. 

Credit will not go towards the following semester for make-ups. Tumbleweeds Art Group does not offer make-ups for already scheduled make-ups, if you miss your original scheduled date.


Pick up-

If you chose the after school pick up option for your child please inform their teacher and school that Hayley Youngs from Tumbleweeds Art Group will be picking up your child. Pick-up information form must be completed in order for pick-up to be preformed. No scooters, skateboards, bikes etc. if your child is receiving pick up. It is important for us to all stick together and be safe.

The after-school art class ends at 5:30PM unless special arrangements were made otherwise.

There will be a $15 charge per 15 minutes starting at 5:45 for any late pick-ups.

No child will be released at pick up to anyone who is not listed on the registration form. If someone new will be picking your child up please inform Hayley from Tumbleweeds Art group with all the necessary details and please also inform your child of the new plan for pick-up time.



Projects may take more than one class to complete.



Please provide a snack and drink for your child to have during class, as Tumbleweeds Art Group is not responsible for providing refreshments.



The 2015 Fall/Winter semester runs from September 10th 2015 until January 29th 2016. The 2016 Winter/Spring Semester runs from February 1st until June 17th. We follow the NYC Department of Education’s School Calendar (for major holidays and school closures).

Changes and/or accommodations to our schedule will not be made unless for reasons specified in the make-up section of the contract. Occasionally, Art outings may be scheduled during regular class time if interesting opportunities present themselves. This counts as a regular class and all regular class policies including pick-up will be followed for these types of outings. Please note the difference between make-up outings and class outings.
