Classroom Rental & Events

Our beautiful classroom can be rented for small group meetings by the half hour or by the hour with loads of options to fit your needs! We are able to accommodate up to 12 children and 12 adults at a time comfortably, with tables and chairs available. Information on space usage, add-ons, availability, and contact info below. To book, Please email artbeaststudio@gmail.com or call the studio (916) 441-1233 or to talk to Nancy or Leslie. Limited availability, since our own classes and events ALWAYS take priority in this space. After hours may be available for a higher rate.

Maybe you have your own following of folks and marketing momentum and would like to offer a pop up class or host an event at our studio and donate a portion to WTV-we’d love to hear your ideas!

Classroom rental DOES NOT include admission to the rest of our studio for the group.

Room Rental Rates & Details

BASIC:

$25 per half hour - This is the base rate with no add ons and limited table and chair usage (set up the room yourself, bring all your own supplies, no staff assisting and no access to staff or other studio areas or our art supplies). Birthday parties will not be allowed to book a room rental and must do a birthday reservation instead. A representative for the group may arrive a max. of 30 minutes early to set up room (There are 2 full sized folding tables and 2 long child tables with chairs that seat 12 adults and 12 kids-please bring your own covers to protect our tables or ask use about using our art covers). All clean up must be done by group within 30 minutes of rental time ending and room left as it was upon arrival or a cleaning fee of $50 will be assessed. All group participants must remain in classroom unless you have made arrangements to also pay admission fees for use of the studio for your group members.

Add ons:

Host - $15/hour - One hour minimum. Required in order to have staff assistance with room set up, if there will be food that requires use of our kitchen or if the group would like access to some of our basic supplies (small construction paper, scissors, glue, markers, etc.). Host will help facilitate room set-up and clean-up (group leader is required to be there for this, host will arrive 15 minutes before rental time begins) and be on hand for questions/assistance as needed by group leader during the event but will not be planning or leading any group activities or crafts.

Experienced Art Beast Teacher - $20/per hour - One hour minimum. Available to guide throughout the reserved time and assist with classroom usage (set up, clean up and assisting group leader-see above for details about set up/clean up) as well as assisting the group with any craft/activity you plan. We will provide the use of basic art supplies-scissors, glue, markers, etc. but any specialty art materials needed for your project and the project planning itself (or leading any other activities) is the responsibility of the group leader not the Teacher.

Private Class - $50-$100 (depending on duration and project) - Includes a 20-45 minute teacher-lead project/program by one of our very own Art Beast Teachers. Date, time, ages of group members, duration, and project must be confirmed at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure the availability of a teacher and to gather materials. All current classes and teachers are options (art, music, movement, songs & stories, etc.), and specific resources/projects available by request. This rate ONLY includes the prearranged duration (20-45 minutes) for the private class. The teacher will arrive for their own set up and clean up of the project/program materials they are presenting and they will lead this activity only. The rest of the reservation time is for the group leader to manage as is any clean up that may be required after the event is over.

If you'd like a host to help with room set up, general clean up and facilitation/assistance for entire reservation time, you will need to add on a host at the hourly rate listed above or check with us to see if the teacher requested for the private class is available to host as well as lead the private class for the entire reservation. Pay hourly teacher rate ($20/hr) in addition to the private class rate. 

Private Craft - $40 - Includes a host and your choice of one of our standard Birthday crafts; wands, puppets, collage boxes, animal masks, or crowns (must confirm selection at least 2 weeks in advance). Host will stay for up to 1.5 hours of the reservation (includes help with set up and clean up depending on duration of room rental). These crafts generally last approximately 15-30 minutes. If you’d like to extend the host’s stay beyond 1 hour, you may request this in advance and pay the standard hourly host fee of $15/hr. in addition to the private craft fee.

Early arrivals for your event may wait in the lobby-regular studio time IS NOT a part of room rental for host or event guests. Standard daily entrance fees apply and it is the responsibility of the individual who made the reservation to ensure all their guests are aware of this policy and enforce it or we may collect any unpaid fees for guests who did not remain in the classroom from the group leader.

It may be possible to arrange room rentals and/or studio free play time after business hours but the rate would be higher and subject to availability, ask for details.

Member Discount - 5% off of your total - For current members only. Punch card holders are not members.

Availability:

Rental of our classroom during our regular business hours depends on our own class schedule and special events, please email us to enquire about current availability or look at our class schedule to get an idea of black out times. Room rental during our business hours is only for private events and not for classes or workshops requiring a fee. Birthday parties will not be allowed to book a room rental and must do a birthday reservation instead. After hours room rental would start at our closing time and is also subject to availability but does allow the possibility of using our space for events where the host is charging a fee (Art Beast will not handle any fee collections for you or serve as a contact point for your event). Any meetings or classes must be clearly advertised and made clear to participants that it is NOT an Art Beast event and that participants DO NOT have access to the rest of the studio nor should they contact us with any questions about your event.

Monday through Friday during regular business hours as available around our regular class and special event schedule
