Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have relaxed our cancelation policy a bit until further notice. We still cannot provide refunds for class cancelations, but for the time being, we are not requiring 48 hours notice to receive a class credit. Students can reach out to reschedule/ receive a credit at any point before the workshop takes place. 

----

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

Modern Abstract Watercolor Painting
Reviewed by Anna P. on 1/6/2020
I loved the laid-back vibe of this class. The teacher gives just enough direction and leaves us free to explore and experiment with the different materials and techniques available, but is always there to help. Really fun to do with a friend or SO.
