YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FAI STAFF AND TEACHERS!

The Fine Arts Institute requires all children 8 years old or younger to be escorted into the building and to their art / drama class by a parent or legal guardian. The FAI now requires a parent or legal guardian to sign your child in before each class. Regardless of age, please do not leave your child more than 5 minutes prior to the class starting time, and please pick your child up promptly after the class has ended. The FAI does not provide before or after care for art classes. We appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.

Parents & Students

Occasionally students’ photos are taken and/or artwork used for publicity purposes.

We encourage FAI children to do their own work. FAI policy is that parents do not join children in the classroom. Thank you for understanding.
