HEALTH NEEDS & ALLERGIES
Registrants must provide details of any medical, health or allergy related needs of students.
We are a NUT FEE studio. Please no peanuts, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, like the ever-popular Nutella, cashews, pistachios, brazil nuts, or nuts of any kind. This includes nut butters and nut milks.
Gloves are mandatory for anyone handling food as part of a celebration or helping a student with any food items, such as, a stuck yogurt or hot food container.
I always keep snacks on hand in case students eat all their goodies at lunch time or need a pick me up. Any healthy snacks provided by me are to the likes of Pirates Booty, Nature's Bakery Fig Bars, Annie's or Yum Earth Fruit snacks, fresh apple packs, and Capri Sun Roarin' Waters ready-to-drink etc.
If you are allergic to NUTS, please notify me directly. I will ensure that other parents in your session do not bring nut items, such as, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, like the ever-popular Nutella, cashews, pistachios, brazil nuts.This includes nut butters and nut milks.
If you have ANY LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES, please take a minute and bring it to my attention directly prior to your session. Thank you!
DROP & PICK UP PROCEDURES
There is an enter/exit door with check in/out procedures for student & adults/guardians.
Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian arriving and departing any Epic program.
Students will only be released to persons listed on registration form at exit door, outside.
Parents may pre-arrange a different arrival/departure plan (walks home, older sibling) by approval only.
POTTERY / CLAY IS AN ADVENTURE
Ceramics is a multi-step process. There are many variables along the way that may result in breakage, color inconsistencies, etc. All work made in classes will be bisque fired and glazed. Please be aware that although every due care and attention is given to every piece I put in the kiln, once inside the kiln Epic Art cannot be held responsible for any work that cracks, explodes damaged or glaze does not turn out as expected. Unfortunately, surprises are out of my hands and also part of the many challenges and adventures of working with clay.
I grant Epic Art to copyright, re-use, publish and republish by any medium, including electronically, any photos included that may be taken while participating in an Epic Art Program unless otherwise notified. Please indicate whether your student may or may not be used for Epic Art public promotion. I understand that photographs, video and/or digital images may be taken of my student and their artwork while participating with Epic Art programs. I understand that no names or personal contact information will accompany any images.
EPIC GIFT CERTIFICATES ROCK
Gift certificates may be purchased through the website or by contacting Info@Epic-Art.com
As a Mom of three very busy boys, I understand it is difficult balancing family activities & work! Epic Art will do its best to be flexible too. As a small business owner, when you register, we hold your spot & turn away other artists; more so, purchase our art supplies, plan space, and additional staff based upon your registration.
What is our CLASS or WORKSHOP cancellation policy?
Please plan carefully as we do not offer refunds only future credit. Refunds are not provided once you have registered for a class or workshop of any kind; however, a credit towards a future registration at Epic Art will be provided on a case-by-case basis by contacting email@example.com. If you receive a credit, credit must be used within 6-months and cannot be changed to a refund. If you simply don’t show up for class, there is no credit or refund.
