You can join in as early as need be, to help your student login and have everything set up. All our Zoom classes have wait rooms for our participants, and the instructor will let everyone into the class about 5-1 minute before the official class start time.
"What if I have to miss a class? Can I make that up at another time?"
Inspyr Arts must receive notice via phone (voicemail or text is ok) or email of an absence in order to be eligible for a make-up class or makeup credit.
Parents have the choice to reschedule the class right away, or to claim a make-up credit to hold on the artist's account. Please note that make-up credits expire after 1 year. See FAQ #4 for ,more information.
"What is considered a 'make-up'?"
The “make-up” class is any class scheduled at a time or day other than the student’s regular permanent class. This will enable Inspyr Arts to give their student’s space to another student who needs to do a make-up or try the class. If Inspyr Arts does not receive notification of absence, the student forfeits the opportunity to make-up or prorate the absence. This includes missed make-up classes.
"How many make-ups do I get? How long do they last?"
While you can reschedule at any time, students are limited to claiming a total of 4 make-ups credits per calendar year. Once a student has received 4 make-up classes, any other classes that you miss, even with prior notice, will forfeit the class for any credit or make-up. Make-ups will expire within 1 year of the original absence. For example, if you received a makeup credit for an absence on 8/24/2020, it'll expire 8/25/2021.
Unused make ups can be turned into gift certificates upon request. Prorating is taking the monetary value of a make-up and deducting it from a month of tuition.
"How do I reserve my child's space in art class or camp?"
If a student would like to reserve a space in a camp, a $50.00 deposit is required at the time the reservation is being made. The student is not guaranteed their space until a deposit is received. Deposits are NON CASH REFUNDABLE, NO EXCEPTIONS. Unused deposits can be used towards any Inspyr Arts services or be given in the form of a Gift Certificate.

"What if we can't come to art class anymore?"
