Frequently Asked Questions
We’re an independent educational program in Seattle. We are affiliated with the Seattle Experimental College (and handle their enrollments on our website). We offer fun, affordable classes. We’re a Seattle art school, Seattle acting school, and Seattle film school, all rolled into one.
Our philosophy is that being anyone can learn to write, draw, act, sing, or express themselves creatively in other ways. Training is more important than “talent.” When you take classes, you may find a talent for something you’ve never tried before. As we go through life, people can lose touch with their creativity for a while. But it can be rekindled. We’re here to help.
Some of our classes meet on the University of Washington campus in Seattle. Others meet at community centers such as Phinney Neighborhood Center or online.
We were established in 2002. We started out offering a handful of classes, then added more classes as our program grew.

IF YOUR CLASS IS CANCELLED:
If you sign up for a class, then it is cancelled – or if its dates, times and location change in a way that makes it unworkable for to attend – you will receive your choice of either a refund of the full amount paid, or a credit voucher for the full amount paid, which can be applied toward any future class.
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND OR CAN’T ATTEND:
If you sign up for a class, then change your mind or can’t attend – and notify us by email 48 hours or more before the first meeting – you will receive your choice of either a refund of the amount paid minus a $50 cancellation fee, or a credit voucher for the full amount paid, which can be applied to any future class. (If you choose the credit voucher, there is no cancellation fee.)
IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE CLASS:
If you sign up and attend only the first meeting of a class with more than one meeting – or attend only the first hour if it’s a one day workshop – and notify us by email within 48 hours – you will receive your choice of either a refund of half of the amount paid, or a credit voucher for half of the amount paid, which can be applied to any future class.
