Where do I get supplies for the classes?
Shortly after registering for a drop-in Maker Challenge class, you will receive an email with a list of general suggested materials. Part of the fun for the Maker Challenge class is that the child has to problem-solve to bring their art to life. We do offer a Starter Pack ($30) with general supplies that should last one student for about a month's worth of classes.
Should I supervise my kid while he/she is participating?
While this experience will certainly engage your child's attention, please remember that we are remote. As such, the expectation is for at least one adult to be in close proximity to the child while he/she is participating in class. Because the child will be engaged with the lesson and interacting with friends, the adult will have the ability to work as needed during the class.
What if siblings want to join in but they are not registered?
Siblings are welcome to join in the fun as long as they understand that they will not receive direct instruction if they have not been registered for the class. In this instance, we happily encourage them to wave to the other kids in the class from the background. We offer a discounted sibling rate of $15.
Is it safe for my kid to be in this video conference?
We strive to create an environment based on respect, independence, creativity and FUN.
