Do you combine age groups?
We prefer to separate the grades K and 1-6 into two classes so that all of the students are challenged at the appropriate level. Depending on enrollment we may have one class with all of the students. Because our student to teacher ratio is low; we are able to guarantee that our younger and beginner students get extra attention and our older and advanced students are given additional challenges.
Does my child need to bring anything?
No, Art a la Carte Kidz and Terrific Scientific provides all professional-quality supplies. You may wish to purchase a t-shirt or an apron, but that is optional.
Can my child go directly to the Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific class when school is dismissed?
Yes, there will always be an Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific instructor at the class location to supervise the students.
After class, do I need to pick up my child from the Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific classroom?
In order to ensure the safety of your child, we request that all parents picking up from class come directly to the Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific classroom and sign them out. If you indicate “After school care” or “Walk Home” during the registration process, the Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific instructor will follow those instructions. If you would like to give permission for your child’s instructor to release your child to meet you at the front of the school, please make a request in writing by mail, or email.

Can you pick my child up at his/her classroom?
We pick up our Kindergarten students from their classrooms. For all other ages, children will come to the Art a la Carte Kidz or Terrific Scientific classroom. We have a roster of all children enrolled so that we can ensure students arrive before the class starts. If you are worried about your child finding the classroom, instruct them to go to the front office and they will help direct him/her to the class.
Is every class or session different?
Yes, Art a la Carte Kidz and Terrific Scientific projects will never repeat.
What kind of projects will my child do?
Art a la Carte Kidz is a FUN, drawing based, fine arts-enrichment program. We explore the many facets of art through drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making, collage, and mixed media. We use artist quality media including Prisma Illustration Makers, Charcoal, Oil and Soft pastels, Polymer Clay, ArtStix, Colored Pencil, Scratch-Art, AquaStik, Paint and Watercolor on a variety of surfaces such as archival or exotic paper, canvas, metal foil, tile, wood, and many recycled objects.
How does your program inspire creativity?
In each and every class, we do fun mental exercises to boost our creative thinking skills. We brainstorm how students can add or change their drawings or projects, ensuring that they learn to take risks and think “outside the box.” Some of our projects are completely open-ended, so that students illustrate their own ideas.
Is there a theme for each session?
No, for our after school classes! Within each session, students explore a variety of mediums and do inspiring projects that include animals, still life objects, landscapes, portraits, architecture, and anime.
Yes, for our Summer Camps! We will offer new camp themes and previously popular camp themes every year!
Who are your teachers?
Art a la Carte Kidz teachers are a combination of teaching artists and current or future teachers. All of our instructors go through comprehensive training on the Art a la Carte Kidz teaching process. In addition, all of our instructors have thorough state and federal background checks.
We follow the schools schedule for inclement weather. If school is out or lets out early, we will not have class that day. We do not issue refunds for inclement weather. Parents will be notified if there is an opportunity to make up the missed class either at the school or at our studio. Make up classes are not guaranteed due to scheduling considerations.
