FAQs

Q: Is there a minimum number of participants that can attend the program?

A: We charge for a minimum of 14 participants.

Q: Is it free for adults to attend the program?

A: Yes, leaders and volunteers are free to attend. Adults who wish to create their own art projects while helping the children are asked to bring $5 cash to cover material cost. If your group wishes to cover this cost, just let your instructor know and we’ll add it to the invoice. We recommend a ratio of 1 adult per 8 children.

Q: Can you adapt your program for our group’s needs?

A: We would love to work with you to create a relevant enriching experience for your group. Please email us at education@leightoncentre.org about your requirements, including relevant topics that we may be able to incorporate into our programming. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
