Registration and PoliciesTo Register:Call 337-296-7292 or Email Please call with any questions about a particular class before you sign up. Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Payment of full tuition reserves your space in the class. Tuition may not be pro-rated for missed classes.  Children should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the start of class. The studio door will be open for arrival. Parent/guardian must pick up the child from the studio promptly at the end of class. Refunds/Cancellations: Full tuition refund will be issued if a class or workshop is canceled by HSCS. Insufficient enrollment can cause cancellation at the last minute. In these cases HSCS will notify those registered students and refund 100% of tuition. Please register early to ensure a place in your preferred class, before it is filled or canceled due to low enrollment.  If a student drops a class up to seven days before the start of a class session, or two weeks before a weekend workshop, tuition will be refunded.

If a student is unable to attend a class, HSCS is not responsible for providing a makeup class. The student may attend a similar class or open studio during that session only.
