Information Meetings

Orientation

Before each new class term begins, we offer an informational meeting to acquaint parents with our school. This talk lasts approximately one hour and provides an overview of our programs. It is designed to answer any questions you may have regarding our classes and helps ensure a successful learning experience at The Art Academy.
