Frequently Asked Questions

Art Classes

Do you offer art classes for children?
Yes. During the school year, we offer two types of classes for children in kindergarten through high school. Kids Art Explorations and Mixed Media & More classes are a weekly commitment for the school year. Class size is limited to 10 students depending on the class.  Your space is confirmed upon paid registration. There are no make-up dates or studio credits for missed classes for any reason including illness and vacation. Make-up dates are offered if the Studio needs to cancel a class or if the Studio closes for family emergency, or illness.

One or two session classes, such as "Make It Mondays", are offered throughout the year on an ad hoc basis.  These classes are limited to 10 or fewer students depending on the project.  Your space is confirmed upon paid registration. There are no make-up dates or studio credits for missed classes for any reason including illness and vacation. If you register for a one or two session class, you must be able to attend both sessions and there are no refunds.  However, you can find another child to fill your child's spot if a conflict arises. 

We also offer classes for children throughout the year.  Check our Children Classes or Calendar pages.

The school year has started. Can I still register my child for Art Explorations or Mixed Media & More?

These classes build on a number of skills learned during the beginning of the year. Therefore, we recommend that you register your child for these classes before the start of the first session the week of September 4, 2019. However, we will accept late registrations up to September 30, 2019, space permitting. Please note that your child will not be able to “make up” missed classes, but will join the class in progress.

Do you offer classes for adults?

Yes. Throughout the year, we offer classes or workshops for adults. These classes are typically one session, but some projects require more than one session and are scheduled as such.  Your space is confirmed upon paid registration. There are no make-up dates or studio credits for missed classes for any reason including illness and vacation. If you register for a multiple session class, you must be able to attend all sessions if you want to complete the project.  However, you can find another person to fill your spot if a conflict arises.

Can I suggest a class or workshop topic?

Absolutely. We love offering classes that you suggest. If you see something on Pinterest or YouTube that you are interested in, let us know and we will see if we can offer it at a reasonable price.

Do you offer multi-generational classes?

Yes. We offer one session classes for family members or friends to attend together, such as Parent/Child, Grandparent/Child, Special Person/Child, where you will work on a project together or separately.

How do I learn about upcoming classes?

We post all of our classes on our website and on Facebook. The best way to learn about upcoming classes is to sign up for our email newsletter and follow Artworks Studio on Facebook.

Can I schedule a private party art class?

Yes. We offer classes for groups of four or more people at Artworks Studio. We suggest that you contact us through our Private Party page for more information. Depending on our schedule and instructor availability, we will consider private classes for smaller groups. Private parties are priced based on the ages of participants and materials required for the class.

Do you post photos from classes on your website or social media?

Yes. I take photos of classes for publicity purposes. If you do not want your image in a photo, please let me know.

Terra Bella Jewelry

Who makes your jewelry?

The Terra Bella Jewelry line is designed and handmade in our studio by Laura Comito. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.

What type of materials do you use?
Unless otherwise noted, we use natural materials from the earth including semi-precious stones, driftwood, sea glass, sea shells, etc. We also incorporate found objects into our jewelry. Our metals are sterling silver, rose gold filled, or gold plated, unless otherwise noted.

Do the pieces have special meaning?
Yes! We feel the end-wearer will be drawn to the special piece that is meant for them. A list of wood and stone meanings can be downloaded.

Is the piece I am buying unique?

Yes! We do not mass produce our wearable art. While you may see a similar design repeated, the materials used in each piece is unique with its own characteristics. We carefully hand drill all the wood ourselves.

How do I care for my Terra Bella jewelry?
Many of our pieces are delicate and should NOT be worn while sleeping, in the shower, or during activities like exercising or gardening. To prevent tangling, pieces should be hung by a hook or laid flat with the chain long.

Do you do custom work?
Yes, we love to work with our customers directly! We would be happy to work with you on a custom design. We'll even transform a special piece of driftwood you already own. Custom orders are subject to an additional charge. Please contact us here.

Do you make men's jewelry?
Yes, we do have unisex pieces and are always happy to take custom requests. Please contact us here or email us at

Do you accept international orders?
No, we do not accept international orders.

What is your return policy?
We gladly accept returns, exchanges, and cancellations. Contact me within 7 days of delivery for returns. Items must be shipped back within 14 days of delivery in a similar box or packaging to protect the piece in the mail. We request that the returned item is in new condition. You may exchange your returned item for another item that costs the same or less than the returned item, which will be shipped to you at no cost. In the alternative, you will be issued a store credit that may be used for the purchase of items in the future. You may request a cancellation of your order for a full refund within 24 hours of purchase.
