· Terms and Conditions

What is the size of a group?
Depending on the course, the minimum number of students in a group is 3-4 and the maximum is 6 - 8 (unless specified differently). The only exception are theoretical courses, where number of students may be maximum 15.  

Can I join in the middle of a course?
In case of weekly courses if spots  available, you can join in the middle of a course. You will enroll in the same way as the rest of the students and pay for the remaining number of lessons. You will be considered an ASIB student from the date ASIB receives your application. 
In case of intensive courses and workshops, there is no possibility to join a course after it has started. 

How do I pay?
ASIB has a sliding scale payment system. Please select the highest amount you can offer from your heart. 

What do I get in exchange for my fees? 
Your payment will cover the costs of organizing and running the courses, facilities, materials for certain courses, paying the Hungarian tax, model fees, as well as snacks and drinks served at each lesson. 

Why do I tailor my own fees at ASB? 
It is my dream to see a world where we are supportive and emphatic enough that needs of every person are taken into consideration. It is also my dream to make it possible that my art lessons are available to anyone, regardless of his  or her financial background.  Finally teaching is providing me financial stability which helps me continue working on my own art.
Through a sliding scale, I want to invite a change in our approach to money and make it a joyful tool to exchange by contributing to each other’s lives.  
When you come to your an art lessons you may meet your need for learning, fun, improving skills and competence,  socializing,  personal growth and much more. When I teach, I meet my needs for sharing my experience and knowledge with others, which gives a lot of meaning to my life.  It is also a strategy to pay my bills and give me financial and time independence which I need to work on my own art.

Can I pay a fix rate? 
In case you do not wish to use the sliding scale and prefer having fix rates the suggested rates for the courses are 8000 Ft / lesson of 2,5 -3 h

Can I pay for only one lesson? 

Payment for one lesson is possible only for the promotional* and the trial lessons** of weekly courses. A person can attend only one trial or promotional lesson per course/workshop.  For any promotional or trial lesson, we would enjoy receiving between 2000 and 6000 Ft. Payment for one lessons does not guarantee your place at the course.
*promotional lesson – a lesson prior to the start of a course offered for promotional reasons
**trial lesson – a lesson a student is attending at a course which had already started  in order to see if he/she will join the course)

What will I support if I offer more? 
In case you offer a higher amount, your contribution will support:   enabling students with lower incomes to participate in ASIB courses ,  purchasing new equipment for the school (art supplies, technical supplies, etc.) ,  purchasing new art books and magazines,  organizing free  events (lectures, workshops, open lessons), finding help for cleaning and maintenance of school ,   my participation at conferences and workshops related to art, education and Nonviolent Communication.

What is the reason for having minimum  minimum amount int he sliding scale? 
In order to be able to sustaining the school, my own life expenses I would enjoy receiving at least the minimum of the suggested amount. 
In case you are interested in attending a course but are unable to offer the minimum suggested fee, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would enjoy  exploring possibilities to support you and hopefully find a win win solution.

What if I miss a lesson?   
Should you know that you are going to miss a lesson, please inform us by email, text message or phone, preferably 24 h in advance or earlier. This will help us plan the lessons and make preparations accordingly. 
When you apply to a course/workshop at ASIB, you are applying to a number of art lessons  held in a group (not private lessons). Even if you may not be present, lessons are still taking place and your spot at the course is taken. In order to provide friendly fees for you and sustainability for the school ASIB cannot refund lessons you may miss.  
What if ASIB cancels a lesson? 

 In case ASIB cancels a lesson, ASIB and the students will agree on a time for a make-up lesson or  the full amount paid for that lesson will be fully refunded.  
What if the number of students in a group drops below the minimum?

  If the number of students drops below the minimum, ASIB may approach you for help in finding a solution, which would suit both you and the school. If no solution is arrived at, ASIB may decide to close the group, in which case you will be fully refunded for all the cancelled lessons (also see Lesson Cancellation below).

How do I apply for a course at ASIB?

In order to secure your place in a course, you will be asked to  submit your application form  and cover your fee at least one week prior to the start of the  first lesson. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on how to apply, please click here.

How can you contribute to ASIB community?
 Become a donor: By donating between  and 6000 - 60.000 Ft (20–200 EUR), you would be supporting some of the students who are unable to afford the tuition fee. ASIB will be happy to connect you with the student(s) who receive your support.
