Come join us for Art Club, a continuation of our class this fall and winter where students are able to play, experiment, follow their own creative interests, and make art that feels exciting to them. In this class, children will be immersed in material resources and learn new skills that help them expand their art practice. Stefanie will be there as children’s guiding cheerleader and technical support, helping them discover new ways to communicate their ideas visually.

  • Do you offer Drop In Classes?
    We do! We offer drop in options for any of our Early Childhood classes that are not full. Drop In registration opens the first day of the semester. Simply click here or on the "Drop In Class" button beside the class you are interested in to register. The class fee includes one adult and one child. You can register for as many drop in classes as you like, there is no limit. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. Advanced registration for drop in classes is required, we cannot accommodate drop-ins at the door/at the time of class.
  • What if my child misses a class?
    We are not able to offer refunds for missed classes unless we cancel a class. Each enrolled family can schedule 2 makeup classes per semester. If you enroll in a class, you'll be given instructions for how to arrange a makeup, should you miss a class. Makeups are permitted as space allows and are on a first come, first served basis. Makeups must be scheduled for the same semester in which you are enrolled. They do not carry over to future semesters. Drop-in classes are not eligible for makeups, credit, or refunds.
  • Does a grownup have to attend classes with my child?
    For our Early Childhood Classes (ages 1.5-4) we do ask that a grownup stay with your child for the duration of class. Our teachers lead each session, but having the child's grownup stay not only helps the child feel comfortable, but also offers adults tools and techniques for continuing art experiences at home.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    We understand that sometimes things come up that make it no longer possible for your child to attend class with us. But we ask that you also understand that late cancellations mean we are unlikely to be able to fill the space in the class, but have already made arrangements for staff and materials. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. You have two options for cancellation of semester-long classes: Option 1: More than 4 weeks prior to the first class? You can receive credit for the full class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Less than 4 weeks prior to the first class but more than 1 week? You can receive 50% credit for the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the start of class are not eligible for credit. Option 2: If it's more than one week prior to the start of class and we are able to fill your spot from the waitlist (if there is one), we will refund you the cost of the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. We cannot give refunds less than one week prior to the start of class. Please note that we only offer full (100%) refunds for a class if WE cancel the class. We are also unable to offer refunds for days or classes missed due to illness or travel. Even if it's COVID. Two makeup classes per semester are available for all of our Early Childhood classes. Drop-in classes are not eligible for credit or refunds.
  • How do the semesters work?
    With the goal of creating classes that are at different price points and therefore accessible to more families, we split the weekday semester into two parts: Semester A and Semester B. You can register for just one, or both (now for a discount!). In response to feedback provided by families, we running our Saturday classes as one longer (8 week) semester. We welcome your feedback on the topic!
  • Can I bring my child's sibling if they are outside the age group?
    Possibly! We want to work with families to create a meaningful art experience for everyone attending our classes. So if you would like to bring a child's sibling who is outside the age group listed in the description, please just email us: info@theartannexbrooklyn.com. If they are within the age group, please just sign them up for a drop in that day.
  • Do you offer discounts or scholarships?
    We fundamentally believe that people of all ages deserve access to high quality arts programming. If you or your child would like to attend one of our classes but cannot for financial reasons, please contact us at info@theartannexbrooklyn.com.
