2) Can I extend my painting session?

For unguided art jam, there is a charge of $10 for any additional hour 

For Liberty Art Jam, no extension is allowed as we need to close on time to respect our instructors' personal time.

3) What if I am unable to finish my painting in one sitting and come back another time to finish it up, must I pay for two sessions?

We want each art jammer to take their time to create a piece they truly love and can take home, so you’re more than welcome to finish up in another sitting (as long as we have space in our storeroom). If you're staying for a second session or returning to complete your artwork, the rate of S$35/pax for the subsequent session(s) still applies. The money that we receive from our Liberty Art Jam sessions helps us to pay our rent + utilities, purchase materials and engage our instructors to keep Liberty Art Jam running ☺ Alternatively, you can opt for the unguided art jam sessions ($25/pax) to complete your painting depending on your preference.

 

Scenario 1 (Liberty Art Jam) 

If Sam booked two sessions on Sunday to paint, the rate is $70/pax.

 

Scenario 2 

If Sam booked a session on Friday night, the rate is $35/pax.

If Sam booked another session on Saturday to finish his artwork, the rate for that session is still $35/pax.

4) Can I request for an extra canvas?
Sure, if you are a fast worker why not? An extra canvas will be an additional of $10 per canvas.
