Weekly Art Classes

COVID-19 Notice

       In-studio classes are currently closed in response to the pandemic. The studio will re-open at limited capacity when King County enters Phase 3 of the state re-opening plan. When in-person classes open, these health policies and procedures will be implemented. Online alternatives will be available during closure orders. Credits purchased before closures will be held valid indefinitely, either to be used in online classes or when the studio re-opens in the future. Please contact us at squakart@gmail.com for more information. 

     We specialize in weekly workshop-style art classes, where students get individual coaching from an experienced instructor. Classes are geared towards adults, teenagers & children ages 7+. Our flexible lesson plan is tailored to individual students by age and art experience, offering suitable techniques to three levels of challenge. Children start with cartooning and basic shape building, and later explore realism, interpretive style and composition. Teens and adults build on these same skills, while moving into areas of concept, communication, and advanced technique. 

Tuition: Click here to view class pricing. Hourly rates vary depending on class duration and number of weeks in a class package. 

Trial Discount: Squak Art Studio offers one trial class to prospective students at a 50% discount from the normal price of a single class (i.e. 1 hour - $13 | 1.5 hours - $20 | $2 hours - $25 | 3 hours - $36). During this class, students will draw from prepared, age-appropriate sample lessons and explore basic art skills and concepts. Introductory class credit must be used in a single class period during the session in which it was purchased. These credits are limited to one per new student.

Family Discount: We know the value of sharing art with others, and we offer discounts to encourage it. Family members who are paid for jointly will receive a 5% discount on their class and camp tuition. Use the promo code family5 while checking out in the online store. 

Referral Discount: When a current student refers a friend who enrolls in four classes/camp days or more, both the new student and the student who referred them will receive a $20 discount on their next tuition. Discounts cannot be combined with coupons or gift certificates.

Early Enrollment Discount: Save big by reserving your class or camp seat in advance! If you pay 1 month before your session begins (i.e. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter), then your tuition will be discounted 10%. Early enrollment discounts are automatically deducted from online purchases. 

Note on offers: Multiple discounts, promo codes, offers and coupons cannot be combined in a single tuition payment, except in combination with early enrollment discounts.
