ArtFusion 19464 admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

All of our classes require a minimum number of students in order to run. If that minimum has not been met one week before the scheduled start of the class, the class will be cancelled. So please register early to avoid disappointment!

Lateness Policy

Makeup Policy

If a class is cancelled by ArtFusion 19464 due to instructor illness or other unexpected event, we will schedule a makeup class. Normally this will mean extending a class session by an additional week.

If a student misses a class, we are not required to offer a makeup class. Our instructors will do their best to catch up a student during the next class they attend. If a student requires further time complete a project due to missed classes, many instructors are available for private lessons.

Illness Policy
  • The safety of our students, instructors and staff is our top priority.

Emergency Plan

In the event the building fire alarm is triggered, all students and staff will immediately exit the building and gather in the parking lot of the former Medicine Shop building (corner of Charlotte and Beech St.) We will only reenter the building when it has been cleared by local fire department personnel.

If we need to leave the immediate area due to an active fire or other emergency situation, our evacuation location is the corner of Hanover and Beech streets, about one block away from the school. If we need to leave ArtFusion 19464 grounds, we will notify parents immediately.
