FAQs - Regular Weekly Program
Thank you for your interest in Classes at Deepti Designs.
Please find some FAQs below which should provide an idea of our Weekly Art Program. Feel free to reach out to us if there are any queries that haven't been answered here.
1. What’s the class-pattern?
We start with sketching with pencil on paper. The kids practice some basic shapes and strokes in 2-3 classes after which we start a project which they draw and paint free hand all by themselves. This project will include the shapes and strokes that they would have practiced in the first few classes. After this, they are again given slightly more advanced shapes for next 2-3 classes and a more complicated painting project thereafter. This is a continuous process of the class. However, to break the monotony and have them learn some variety, we introduce different art styles every once in a while like Warli art or Modern style or some interesting crafts.
2. Duration of the class?
Typical duration of a class is 60 minutes, however the class generally overshoots by 10-15 minutes. So please know that all the additional time per term goes to the students free of cost as quality and creativity are our prime virtues. Please plan for other activities after classes accordingly or let us know in advance if a student needs to leave sooner.

10. How to make-up missed classes?
Our Makeup Class policy is specifically for the benefit of all the students as it’s not valuable to overload a class with a number that could be hard to handle. Individual attention is our priority. Thus, makeup classes are NOT guaranteed and can be availed under the following circumstances -
- if absence from a class has been communicated at least 24 hours in advance
- if there are no extra classes scheduled in the specific term over and above 12 each in Winter, Spring, Fall and 4 each in Summer Sem1, Summer Sem2 and Holiday Sem.
- Based on availability in a different batch
- Make up class needs to be finished in same term - It CANNOT be carried forward
- No refund or balance will be carried forward to the next term.
11. Other relevant information –
- We try and maintain punctuality for best use of class time and encourage parents to drop-off kids no later than 5 minutes of starting time.
- We reserve the right to refuse admission to any participant who poses a disciplinary problem or disrupts class
- Parents (or an allocated responsible adult) must be contactable at all times during class
- We do take photographs occasionally of the class and artworks of students. These maybe used at our annual “Young Artists Showcase” or sometimes for websites or other advertising and publicity purposes. We reserve the right to publish any photographs of children working in class and/or artwork created by them - If you do not wish for your child to be photographed, please inform us before the commencement of your child’s first class
