Preschool Partners

      This class is for children ages 3-5 who are in preschool.  Students attend with a parent helper to sit next to them and help when needed.  Many projects will be based on a story we read in class.  Other projects will be based on holidays, seasons and the world around them.

Make up classes

In case of inclement weather, classes are cancelled.  I follow the Central Dauphin School district’s closing schedule, so if their school is closed or has an early dismissal then art is cancelled.  I will send out an email (or text if you prefer) if class is cancelled.  I will also post on my FB page “Maureen Marks Art”.  A make-up class will be scheduled on the same night and time as the class you are signed up for.

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.                                

Cancellation Policy

For class sessions, a 2 week notice must be given for cancellation for a refund minus fees listed below.
