FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of learning art and why choose Artlette?
You may visit our beliefs and values page. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @artlettecolours to check out our student artworks and studio happenings! =)
How do I register for my trial class?
Please visit and select 'KIDS' or 'HOBBYIST' category. You will be able to select the available date and time for the classes.
What is the class setting like?
A class may be of mixed age group and programs, but personal guidance is given to each student. The teacher to student ratio is capped at 1:6.
Can I stay in the class with my child?
All our classes are drop off class, non-accompanied by parents so as to ensure all students stay focused during the lesson. If your child falls between 4-5 years old, we encourage your child to go for a trial to ensure he/she is suitable for the program.
You can also sign up for our hobbyist program where the start and end time is the same as your child.
Did my child draw/paint all by himself/herself?
Our objective is to teach, guide and inspire students during the course. At times when teachers need to show painting techniques, demo how to correct mistakes or point out the different values in the objects. In such cases, teacher may have to 'touch' the student's painting so as to provide guidance. We also use dotted techniques to assist preschoolers to draw the correct shapes of the objects. We do not touch up students' artwork just to beautify or assist in the completion.
If you have any queries on your child's artwork, you can approach the teachers after the class.
Why is my child not able to draw/paint as well at home?
For the kids program, the students are taught step by step instructions on the drawing and painting. They are reminded and guided by the teachers during the class. We assist in their handling of materials, provide them insights on the choice of colours and inspire their creativity. We do not expect all young students to replicate the same standard of artwork independently at home. However, we strongly encourage the students to remember the learning objectives for each lesson.
Through time and practice, they will gain confidence to express themselves and create artworks based on the extensive themes and technical skills they received in the class.
How many lessons are needed to complete an artwork in the hobbyist / PM class?
We always aim to teach students to gain a strong foundation focusing on the learning process. There is no fixed formula but we do set targets for the students based on student's ability and complexity of artwork. Kindly note that it takes time to learn and success through practice, exploration and develop their creativity. We also value student's interests and motivation hence learning through pressure will not be beneficial for them in the long run.
If you wish to understand more on your child's progress, you can approach the teachers after the class.
If I miss my weekly lesson, how do I schedule my make-up class?
Each student is entitled to leave of absence/change in time slot; Flexi-4 days, Full program-2 days, Half program-1 day
Student must provide 24 hours notice in writing for any missed lesson(s), otherwise session will be counted. Please schedule the make-up lesson before program expiry date, otherwise it will be forfeited.
Please visit and indicate "makeup lesson for DD/MM/YY & Time (i.e. your regular class timing)" in the comments before you submit the form.
Make up lesson cannot be changed once booked and if absent, attendance will be counted.
When do I need to pay for the term fees?
You will receive an email when payment is due. Each program must be paid two (2) weeks in advance (i.e. due on the 2nd last session) to confirm your class slot. Otherwise, it will be considered a voluntary withdrawal and the class slot may be released to the next student in the waiting list. The studio reserves the right to refuse attendance if payment has not been received by the due date.
We hope to promote graciousness from this approach as compared to holding deposits as many parents/students tend to forget about their deposits or is unable to give the minimum notice of one month.
It is also beneficial to students as advance notice allows us ample time to plan the lessons and scheduling of teachers for the classes.
There is no refund if student early withdraw from the program.
