Childhood: An International Photo Exhibition Juried By Jamie Lee Curtis

Reception Thursday, January 7, 6 - 8 pm

A group exhibition presented by Texas Photographic Society (TPS). Both Amateur and professional photographers were invited to submit color and black and white works that depict images of childhood. The juror is Jamie Lee Curtis, actress, children’s book author, activist, photographer and collector. Ms. Curtis said about the exhibit, “Childhood is fleeting – yet sometimes, in a fraction of a second, photographers can capture its essence: joy, pain, play, boredom, frustration, elation. As an author of children’s books I have tried to capture what it feels like to be a child – the good and the bad – and to stimulate a dialogue between children and parents regarding the issues raised in the book. I hope to see creative work that captures childhood’s many guises.”

OUTREACH
TOTALLY COOL, TOTALLY ART

Totally Cool, Totally Art (TCTA) is a collaborative project of the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, the Dougherty Arts Center, and community recreation centers. The programs are designed to enrich and expand the choices made available to youth during high risk, after-school hours by creating alternative activities. From November - April, teams of artists visit recreation centers Monday - Thursday evenings: offering a full range of visual art classes at no cost to youth in grades 7-12. The TCTA philosophy is based on a process-oriented educational method, emphasizing the process of making art instead of the product. Through the creative process, each participant has opportunities to enhance creativity, promote self-esteem and foster respect for others. Modeled as a free, afterschool arts education program, TCTA maintains a strong mentoring component both before the classes with recreation center staff, and during the classes where teens work along side professional artists. Helping teens connect with role models in the community, the program reinforces their positive choices and gives them new experiences. TCTA also builds respect and trust, keeps them out of trouble during high risk after-school hours, and improves their skills in creative expression, communication, teamwork and arts appreciation.

Registrations received prior to 9:00 am on the first day of registration will be returned without being processed. See back cover for registration dates.

Cancellation & Refunds
Program attendance is the responsibility of the participant. Failure to attend a class does not entitle a participant to a transfer, make-up, prorate or refund. Registration fees are refundable in full only if the Arts School has cancelled the class. Registrations cancelled with at least 7 days advanced notice may be issued a refund; minus a $35 non-refundable deposit. If the receipt amount is $35 or less, the refund will be half of the class fee. No refunds are issued for registrations that are cancelled without 7 days advanced notice. Refunds are issued to the charging credit card, by check from the City of Austin (please allow 4 - 6 weeks for processing) or you may apply the credit to your account; which may be used by any immediate family member for any program offered at the Dougherty Arts School for up to one year. Please note that refunds under $10 will only be made to the charging credit card or to credit your account. We are sorry that we are unable to process refund checks under $10 at this time. There is a $25 cash fee on all returned checks.

Payment
All but three programs and classes require full payment at the time of registration. Explore classes, the Creativity Club and Afternoon Art offer monthly tuition payment options. Payment is due in our office by the 15th of each month for the next month’s tuition (if the 15th day of the month falls on a Sunday or holiday, payment will be due the next work day). Late fees of $15 will be assessed beginning on the 16th. Drop day is the 20th. If the payment does not reach our office before the 20th, we will assume that your child is no longer participating in the program, and we will offer the spot to another child on the wait list.

Emergency Cancellation
If an adult class meeting is unexpectedly cancelled due to an emergency, every effort is made to call students and reschedule the class. In addition, a sign is posted on the classroom door. Typically, the class meeting is made up the week following the last day of class. The Dougherty Arts Center observes all emergency closures, including weather closures, as directed by the City Manager for youth and adult classes.

Summer Camp Payments and Deposits:
The first summer camp for each student must be paid in full. Additional summer camps may be secured with a $35.00 deposit; with the remainder due two weeks before the camp starts. Unpaid students are dropped from the roster without refund two weeks prior to the camp start date. Early and Late studios must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Minimum Enrollment
Each class needs a minimum number of students to enroll before the class can “make”. If the minimum enrollment has not been met 3 business days before the class begins, the class will be cancelled. Any students who enrolled in the class will be notified by telephone, and may transfer to a different class or be issued a refund. We encourage all students to enroll as soon as registration begins. Class receipts confirming the registration has been processed will be mailed along with a copy of the Dougherty refund policy. Please check your phone messages in case a class is cancelled after the payment receipt has been sent. Also, waivers are required for all students under the age of 18 before the student can participate in class. See: Participant Waivers.

Enrollment Criteria
Preschool aged students and older must be potty-trained prior to enrollment and have the maturity level to work in a classroom setting.

Waiting Lists
One way to deliver quality service is by limiting the class size to provide a good student/teacher ratio. If a class has reached the maximum limit, names are placed on a waiting list and students are called as openings become available. Students will be notified by telephone if the class is full and has a waiting list.

Childcare Standards Ordinance

Registration for classes that start within 7 days must include the waiver with registration, or may be hand-delivered or faxed by the end of the day.

Sign-In and Out Permission
For youth programs, the parent/guardian is required to enter the building each day at the beginning and ending of the program to sign a check-in and check-out list. Please be prepared to show identification to our staff.

Child Placement Policy
Children are placed in camps and classes according to their age and birth date. If the student’s birth date falls during a camp session, they may enroll in either the younger or older camp. Camp or class size must conform to the City of Austin Childcare Safety Ordinance. If you would like your child to be placed in a different camp or class than they are assigned, please request this in writing by submitting a Class Request form. Contact 974-4040 for a copy. While we try to accommodate all requests, placement cannot be guaranteed; as we must follow the age and class size policies. In order to provide enough time for planning and organizing classes, all requests must be submitted 5 business days before the camp or class begins. Also, due to limited time and organization constraints, we cannot move students on the first day of class.

Youth Late Pick-up Fees
Program hours are exact class times. Students may be dropped off no more than ten minutes before the start of class or camp. If you arrive prior to this, you must wait with your child until the drop-off time; when classrooms open. Pick up time is promptly at the end of class (you may pick up your child earlier, if you like). Late fees begin accruing as soon as the class ends. The late pick-up fee is $5 for the first 15 minutes past the end of class and $5 for each 5 minute interval thereafter. Early and Late Studios are offered for some camps (ages 6 and older) for an additional fee. Late fees apply to the Late Studios as well. Please help ensure the safety of your child by dropping off and picking up within camp /class program hours.

Accessibility Accommodations Requests
Individuals with disabilities participate in the COA Parks and Recreation Department Programs. You may request special accommodations to facilitate your participation/inclusion in these programs. Parents should schedule an interview 6 - 8 weeks in advance of enrollment to the program. Requests for reasonable accommodations will be reviewed and determined on an individual basis.

Parent’s Guide
For most Youth classes and camps, parents will receive a Parent’s Guide. Parents are asked to review the program information about our safety and discipline guidelines before their child arrives for class or camp at the Dougherty Arts School.

Medication Permission
If a child is taking a prescription or non-prescription medication during program hours, a “Permission to Give Medication” form must be completed at the Dougherty Arts School office. Every effort should be made by the parent/guardian to administer medication prior to or after program hours. If this is not possible, then the Arts School staff will administer medication according to the information on the “Permission to Give Medication” form. The Arts School staff will only accept the exact dosage needed during program hours. Do not send the complete bottle of liquid, tablets or powder. The medication must be provided in the original container with the following information: child’s name, type of medication, time to be given and other specific instructions (ask the pharmacy for an additional container with instructions).
