Terms & Conditions
(Let’s Do The Right Thing)
We find that most contracts contain confusing legalese. Our aim is to foster understanding, cooperation, and mutual benefit. An Agreement written in plain English helps us achieve our aim.
We don’t want to overwhelm you with complicated language and or crowded text, so we’re intentionally using a simple format with lots of white space.
The purpose of this Agreement is straightforward. You are hiring us, “Ann Rea, Inc.”, who is doing business as “Making Art Making Money™,” to perform the services described below.
This Agreement is the official record of our relationship. Our Agreement lays out what each of us can expect and must do and by when and what will happen if, heaven forbid, something goes wrong.
Please note. You already agreed to the Terms and Conditions outlined here by checking a box before your tuition payment could be processed. So that you don’t miss anything, we are reiterating the “Making Art Making Money™” Terms and Conditions below.
However, there are certain aspects of the law that we can not translate into plain English. We’ll need to take the language up a few grade levels in these cases. We’ve highlighted these sections in blue.
