FAQ

 

Questions? We’ve got answers.

 

Are the Art Association and the Center for the Arts the same thing?
No. The Art Association is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates inside of the Center for the Arts campus. Our art classes and camps, studio spaces and gallery are independently managed by Art Association staff.

How do I register for a class?
You can register online or in-person at our main reception desk. Payment is required at the time of registration.

 

How can I find out what supplies I need for my class/workshop?
Most classes include basic supplies. However, some specialty classes require you purchase supplies. Please check the description of the course online before the first day of class for information on supplies.

 

Do I have to be a member to take classes at the Art Association?
No, you don’t. However, members receive a 20% discount on all classes. Learn more about the benefits of membership.

 

Can I get an academic degree or college credit at the Art Association?
No. We are a non-accredited arts center and therefore you cannot earn an academic degree.

 

Do you sell art supplies?

Is parking available at the Art Association?

What is your policy for withdrawals and refunds?
A 90% refund is given to students who cancel more than 7 days prior to the class start date. If a student cancels enrollment within 7 days of the course, no refund will be given.

 

What does it mean to be on the waitlist?
When a class fills, additional students are put on a waitlist. If an enrolled student drops that class, waitlisted students will be contacted to see if they are still interested in taking the class.

 

Do you offer one-on-one instruction?
Yes! Let us know what you’d like to do by sending an email to signup@artassociation.org
