OUR FAQ

Do you offer art classes for adults?

Yes we do! We believe it’s never too late to find your inner Picasso!
Check out our adult programs here.

What languages are the lessons taught in?

We think the language of art is universal, but most of our classes

are taught in English, and some are even offered in Spanish and Mandarin.

Do you offer Day Camp?

Most Definitely! From Winter Break to March Break, and Summer

Day Camp, we have wonderful programs for school aged kids

designed to keep your kids creatively busy and engaged.

Is there parking?

Street parking is available along Yonge Street, and the neighbouring streets.

That said, it’s always wise to come early to make sure you find a spot.

What’s included in the tuition fee?

The CLAP Studio tuition fee includes all art supplies, unless otherwise

specified in the program details. For regular season programs (excluding workshops),

a personal CLAP Studio apron, portfolio, and artwork display box

are also included. To celebrate the amazing artwork that is

produced, every semester ends with an open house showcase/exhibition.

Can I reach you by public transportation?

Let’s hear it for the TTC! And the best part – we’re just a 10 minute walk from the Lawrence Subway Station.

How long is a typical full-length course?

At CLAP Studios most of our courses fall into our four semesters – Spring,

Summer, Fall, Winter. With short breaks between semesters, an average course is 10 weeks long.

What should I bring to the first day of class?

Definitely bring your creative spirit, your awesome smile and a fun
attitude! Also, an electronic copy of your order and class confirmation
number.

I love the CLAP Studio apron/portfolio holder/display box! Can I buy more for myself or my kids?

Absolutely! All of our supplies are either available in store or online for
purchase. If it’s not in stock, we can have it for you in store for pick up
within 14 days.

Is your facility wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, our Studio is not 100% accessible. Our main floor is
accessible but does not have a washroom available on that floor. As well,
our facility does not have an elevator which means our second floor is not
wheelchair accessible.

What makes CLAP Studio unique?

CLAP Studio programs for kids are specifically designed by progressive
educators to support the Ontario School Curriculum. Our small class
sizes allow each teacher to provide students with lots of one-on-one
attention and guidance. CLAP Studio teachers are also multi-lingual,
with the ability to offer classes in English, Mandarin, French and Spanish.
And we also have a unique Portfolio Building program, for those in highschool
looking for a competitive edge in their application to the best Art
Colleges and Universities around the world.

What should I wear to class?

Let’s be honest – art making is fun but often messy! For that reason, we suggest
students come dressed in comfortable clothing they don’t mind getting a
possible stain (or two!) on. We do provide aprons, and even a personalized one
for each student in full-term programs, but best to come prepared.

Can I bring snacks to class?

Snacks and art-making aren’t always the perfect mix. For that reason, we don’t
recommend bringing snacks to class. If you feel you must bring something to
munch on, please make sure it’s Nut Free.

Missed Classes

Since we take great care in planning and building our courses, there are no
make-up classes for any missed class. We are also unable to offer a discount,
refund or credit for classes not attended. That said, at CLAP Studio we want to
ensure all projects are completed and will do our very best to help each student
catch up during the next class. However, if a student misses two consecutive
classes or more, it’s important to be aware that they may not be able to catch up
and leave the course with a finished work of art.
