At Fezilla, we provide a course in digital art and illustration. It covers the fundamentals of art, introduces the student to the tools of digital art such as Adobe Photoshop and graphics tablets. We provide students with the opportunity to explore their creativity in a fun, friendly and social environment.
Our studio follows the Victorian school systems schedule. Each term at Fezilla is 10 weeks regardless of a longer or shorter school term.
New students are provided with a handy starter kit. Our starter kit provides students with useful art tools and a USB drive to transport their digital files home with them.
Information on our fees structure:
We offer three distinct payment options for our terms.
Option 1: Week-by-week. $55 per week per class attended. This is our most popular option due to its flexibility. Students are only required to pay for classes they are able to attend.
If there happens to be a week where a student cannot attend while utilizing this payment method, there is no monetary loss to the parent.
Option 2: Half-and-half. $250 paid at the beginning of a new term, and the remaining $250 is paid at the halfway point of the term (week 5/6.)
Option 3: Full fee. A $500 upfront fee at the start of the term.
Terms and Conditions of Enrolment at Fezilla Studio Gallery
At the end of every term we send out information to parents and contact them regarding their child's re enrolment for the upcoming term. The cut off date is at the beginning of the new term. If we do not receive a confirmation in time the student will not retain their spot and we open the spot for students on our growing wait list. We do not enroll 18 y/o's and over.
School Holiday Programs
We are often asked about school holiday programs. We do not offer a school holiday program. As Luke is the only tutor at Fezilla, we take this time to have a break.
Studio Terms of Enrolment
Absentee Policy: Concerning students paying our Full Fee or Half-and-Half fee payment option: These students are not eligible for refunds for classes they are unable to attend. This policy does not apply if Fezilla cannot provide classes due to staff illness or other possible disruptions.
Cancellation Policy: Concerning students paying our Full Fee or Half-and-Half fee payment option: If a student cancels their attendance to a term please understand that Fezilla Studio Gallery cannot reimburse you.
Students are requested not to attend class if they feel sick, are sick, or are recovering from an illness. As Fezilla is a sole trading business, there is no staff that can be utilized to cover for Luke if he becomes ill. This can lead to class cancellations and falling behind on workload to the detriment of classes as a whole.
Concerning parents or guardians utilizing the Full Fee or Half-and-Half fee tuition payment options: Refunds will not be given to parents or guardians of students who are unable to attend class due to illness under these payment plans. Refunds will be provided under these payment plans if Fezilla is unable to offer classes due to Luke being ill or otherwise indisposed.
At the end of each term, during the school holiday break, Fezilla will make contact with parents or guardians of all currently enrolled students to ascertain which students will be returning for the upcoming term (re-enrolment). Fezilla requires parents or guardians to reply no later than the end of the school holidays. This gives parents or guardians two weeks notice to get in touch with Fezilla to confirm their child's enrolment for the upcoming term.
However if Fezilla has made several attempts to make contact with a parent or guardian to ascertain these details to no avail - the student will lose their place in their class. Fezilla will notify the parent or guardian of this. Please understand we have a wait list of prospective students interested in getting on board with the studio.

Term Project Information
In Term 1 I like to make a collaborative zine with my students. This term the project all students will be undertaking will be a collaborative zine where each student is given their own prompt word.
