Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find and sign up for classes?
When signing up for classes at our main location, please do so through our registration system by navigating to the class page. The Classes tab on our home page is one way to find a class. And, the Class Finder allows you to set parameters to find the perfect class for you!
When signing up for classes at our other locations, please follow the links on the location’s website or on our calendar to sign up.
How do I schedule a birthday party?
Begin by checking out our Parties page. Use that information to explore our various types of parties and fill out an information form, accessible from each party page!
What if I have paid for a session and my child misses a class?
Lupine Lane does not offer refunds for missed classes. However, with 24 hours notice of absence (email or call 512-900-1090) we are able to accommodate 1 make up class per month. The 24 hours notice is necessary so that we can set aside materials that will not be used.
What if my child is not the exact age that you specify for the class but would like to participate?
The age ranges are simply guidelines. Each parent knows their child best. If you feel he or she is ready to participate but is outside the age range, email Lauren and we can arrange for your child to be in the best class for his or her needs.
Can parents stay with their children in a Just Kids Class?
Just Kids Classes are designed for the child to learn independently. We ask that parents please leave the classroom if your child is participating in a Just Kids Class. While we realize it is interesting to watch your child learn and create, we want to give each child equal time and attention, which becomes difficult when some parents are present and some are not. We thank you for understanding. If you are looking for a class where you can be with your child, our Mommy and Me classes are designed for both the child and the parent to participate together.
Should my child bring an apron or a smock to cooking and art classes?
We have aprons (and chef hats!!) for all Cooking classes. And, we also have smocks (that will fit kids and parents as well!) for Art classes. Or, your child may bring their own aprons or smocks. However, it is still a good idea to wear old clothes that your child can get messy. If you will be participating in a Mommy and Me Class, it is best to wear old clothes yourself. Often times, paint and food can wind up in the craziest places!
Why the name “Lupine Lane”?
One of Lauren’s favorite books as a child was Miss Rumphius. When Lauren was a little girl, she requested that her father read it to her every night. Miss Rumphius felt she needed to make the world a more beautiful place and did so by scattering lupine seeds over the countryside. Because they read the book every night together, Lauren’s Dad began calling her “Lauren Lupine.” It stuck, and when Lauren was living in Colorado, she lived near a street named Lupine Lane. It seemed to be the perfect name for a bright and colorful place where kids create, learn and grow, all while making the world a more beautiful place, just like Miss Rumphius!
