Education Refund Policies

Refund Policies for Classes and Workshops

 

  • Non-Refundable Deposit

Please note that for all classes and workshops 10% of tuition is a non-refundable deposit in cases of withdrawal.

  • Withdrawing prior to the start of a class

In order to request a withdrawal from a class or workshop, students must contact the education department by phone or email at least 5 days before the first class meeting. Students who request a withdrawal at least 5 days prior to the first meeting will receive a 90% tuition refund. Students withdrawing fewer than 5 days from the first day of class are not eligible for a refund.

  • Policy regarding course cancellations

As a nonprofit organization, the Art Center cannot underwrite its courses and reserves the right to cancel a course that does not meet minimum enrollment requirements. We also reserve the right to cancel or postpone any program or activity due to low enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If the Art Center cancels or significantly alters a class, a full refund will be issued or the student may be placed in an alternate class with available spaces by contacting an education staff member.

  • Missed Classes 

Please note we are unable to provide make-up opportunities, prorate or provide refunds for missed classes due to personal scheduling conflicts.

  • Independent Studio Time

No refunds of any kind will be issued for Independent Studio purchases regardless of the reason. Passes expire at the end of each term and unused hours cannot be carried over.

  • What does it mean to be on a waitlist?

If a class is full a student may place themselves on a waitlist. If space becomes available in a class, waitlisted students will be offered the space in sequential order and contacted by phone or e-mail. Please do not attend the first session unless you have been contacted by an Art Center staff member. No charges are assessed until the student is placed in a course.

  • Class Age Requirements

The Art Center carefully considers the age requirements for all of its classes and receives many questions from students about the possibility of moving into an alternative age range.  Please understand that we do not make exceptions to the age requirements for our classes.

  • Art Camp Age Requirements

Campers are divided into groups based on the age they will be during the week of camp that they are attending.

Below is a list of the following age groups that campers will be divided into:

Creativity Camp: (3 Groups) Ages 5-7, Ages 8-9, & Ages 10-12

Clay Camp: (1 group) Ages 9-12

We receive many questions from parents about the possibility of moving their child into an older age group for many reasons-- above-average artistic skills, to be with a friend, mature for their age, birthday is a few weeks away, etc.

Please understand that we make no exceptions to the minimum age required to be in each group.
