Oh yes. We already have many art groups meeting here for their monthly meeting venue. As far as private parties… Currently, we don’t offer this but we are always open to new ideas. Contact Cathy (link with email) for more information and let’s talk about it.

What do you mean “Art Gallery & Design Studios”?

We have an art gallery that we will be featuring one local artist and many art works from others. These openings will be open to the public with various artist works for sale. Watch out website for up-to-date information and news about “Coming Events”.  Our Design Studios are spaces for lease to artists. They come in various shapes and sizes, and prices well below market rates.

We accept cash, check, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover).

Classes

Are the art supplies included in the cost of the class?

Nearly all of the classes we offer here at Charisma include everything you will need. But always check the “Class Description” page to verify this.

Do you have an age limit for classes?

Yes. All classes hold an 18 or older policy unless stated in the “Class Description”.

Do you have bilingual classes?

We are always looking for instructors that speak other languages. Check the “Class Description” page for those details.

Do you offer children’s classes?

Occasionally we will offer summer classes for children. Watch our “Classes” page for further details.

How many other students will be in the same class with me?

Our facility can accommodate up to 14 students in any given class but that is a choice the instructor makes. Check the “Class Description” page for those details.

I have no experience. Can I still take classes at your studio?

Absolutely! In fact sometimes it is easier to teach someone who has little experience because it is like starting with a clean slate.

What if I already own some of the art supplies, can I bring my own?

By all means, bring them. Many of the classes include the supplies but you may want to play with more and it would be nice to have the space to work with them.

What is your refund / cancellation policy?

A full refund will be issued to participants if a class is cancelled. No refunds or credits of any payment will be made for notification of withdrawal within 15 days of the start of the class, once the class has started or for missed classes.  Prior to that time, we will refund your tuition minus the $50 non-refundable deposit.

Where do I get supplies for classes?

If the instructor has a list of supplies for you to bring, there will also be a resource page with locations for you obtain these supplies.
