WHAT IS C.A.N.?
The Creative Art Network is a traveling art school based in Everett, WA that offers a large variety of Online and On-site classes for all ages of students.
Lukas Allenbaugh started C.A.N. in 2004 while he was a public school teacher as a way to further arts integration in the classroom. Leading up to C.A.N. he worked as an Artist in Residence and a commissioned artist in the areas of mural painting, illustration, and sculpture, with projects often involving hundreds of students and community members to complete a final product. Over the last 25+ years of working with students in the arts, Lukas has focused on offering both the tools and freedom for students to create their own original works.
The following policies will be upheld unless your school has policies that state otherwise.
All supplies are provided by C.A.N. for On-Site classes.
LATE POLICY AND ATTENDANCE
C.A.N. charges $1 for every minute a parent is late. Payment is due at the time you pick up your child. Check, Cash, and Square Point of Sale (credit or debit card) payments are accepted. Failure to pay at the time of pickup results in the child's removal from class without a refund.
If you are running late text (206) 607-7493 with your E.T.A. Children often worry when parents don’t show on time or don’t communicate when/if they are showing. Instructor needs to leave on time to uphold other time sensitive contracts and commitments. Please send a quick email to C.A.N. if your child is going to miss a class. (1-2 days notice is greatly appreciated). Parents are required to come directly to the pickup area to sign out their child. Children are not allowed to leave the instructor’s supervision until this happens. (Exception: Email C.A.N. with parental consent for your child to walk/bike home).
Parents must request a refund before the start of the 3rd class session. A full refund is offered if cancelled within this deadline. C.A.N. does not offer prorated refunds or makeup days for days that are missed due to inclement weather, natural disasters, or unforeseen circumstances. All efforts will be made to provide makeup days if they are available with the location where the class was held. Make-up days will not be scheduled for student absences even if it’s the last day. Make-up assignments are not provided by the instructor.
Snacks must be provided by each family, C.A.N. does not supply snacks.
Please review the class information found on the "schedule" menu of this website with your child on or before the first day of class, such as the room number and class start time. (Some locations decide on room numbers a few days before the start of class so please check on the room number the day before class starts).
C.A.N. reserves the right to refuse services to students and families who do not comply with classroom rules. Classroom rules include listening when the teacher is talking to the class, treating other students and the teacher with respect, respecting equipment, and following rules involving classroom processes when structure is required. Class rules are covered each day at the start of the class to the extent that students can eventually recite them from memory. Parents will receive an email from the instructor if an intervention is needed and students will have the chance to improve their behavior and grow as a result.
