Make up classes

In case of inclement weather, classes are cancelled.  I will send out an email if class is cancelled.  I will also post on my FB page “Maureen Marks Art”.  A make-up class will be scheduled.

If for any reason your child misses a class and we are still working on it when they return I will help them to catch up as much as possible.  If a project was completed during absence it will be sent home unfinished.  If a new project was started during absence they will make a smaller or simpler version of the project as per teacher discretion.
