Please Note course changes as of May 22, 2019: 

 Fresh from the streets of Florence, Rome, Siena, Milan, Turin and other places in my beloved Italia and filled with inspiration, I am offering  Water color and Acrylic Painting COURSES in the month of June  2019.
 Than, I return to Florence in August for a awhile, so catch me while you can.
 The Vancouver Island studio on Hammond Bay Road is undergoing renovations, so I will be offering classes in another location for the summer  - this will be determined and confirmed very soon, but it will be in a central Nanaimo location. Please call or register to save yourself a spot - class sizes are limited.

Courses and Registration

 Procedures and Policies:

In order to register for a class and secure your place in that course, students are required to provide a
deposit (50% of their course fees). Space is limited and registrations are taken on a "first come, first-served basis", so you may be put on a wait-list for the next round of  classes if they are currently full. 
If you cancel your registration 10 days or less  before the start date of the course or  do not attend the first class, you will  forfeit  their deposit . Students who do not attend the first class may lose their spot in the class  if there is a wait list. 
***Fees for all returned (NSF) cheques is $ 40.00

How to Register and Pay Your Class Deposit:  

Course fees or class deposits can be made in person at the studio  or by  calling Penny  (250)  327-2533 .
We accept cash, cheque, Visa and Master Card. NO Debit or e-transfers.
No cash is kept on the premises, so please notify us if you are paying with cash and are not bringing the exact amount for your fees/course.


One make-up class will be offered ( at the end of each session) ONLY IF the class has been cancelled due to bad weather/dangerous road conditions , a power outage or if the instructor has cancelled a class for any reason. Students are responsible for ensuring they can attend  all the classes they have registered for.
Should a student be unable to attend a course due to an unforeseen emergency such as a  serious illness and/or hospitalization ,family emergency or accident  a Gift Certificate will be issued for the balance of the course at the instructor's discretion. 
Notice of such an event  must be provided within 2 weeks of it's occurrence, otherwise this  offer is void . A delay in notifying the  instructor/studio  may result in another student being  turned away in your place and class supplies are purchased based on the number of students  registered/enrolled. Gift Certificates are transferable.  NO REFUNDS are given. 


Children/youth attending the Fine Arts Masters class are expected to attend for 8 consecutive weeks and cannot repeat classes missed due to PD Days, holidays, family events/celebrations, social activities, forgotten/ missed classes, sports events/activities, family holidays, summer vacation or illness. NO REFUNDS are given. As this class is frequently full and runs all year,  other students are turned away when registrations are taken and the class is full - so IF your child does not attend class(es) this will still count as an absence and this class will NOT be repeated. In simple terms, 8 weeks is 8  consecutive weeks - not 10 weeks or 12 weeks due to being away. 

Gift Certificates may be used for weekly classes or Weekend Workshops taught by Penny Maday Ciochetti. They may not be applied to courses or events with special Guest Artists at the studio.
