Artists Academy Policies
CLASSES: The Academy offers non-accredited art classes and welcomes all. Professional instructors offer day, evening, and weekend courses and workshops in a variety of media. The school offers classes for all ages.
POLICIES: The Academy welcomes all and does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, ethnicity or national origin. Group cooperation is essential in the classroom, so The Academy reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who is disruptive, or in any way impedes the learning process of the group collectively. No refunds are given for dismissed students. We reserve the right to substitute an appropriate instructor or alternate location when necessary.
Please use good judgment when registering for classes, as The Academy cannot be held accountable for adverse reactions that may arise in some individuals even though all reasonable safety precautions will be practiced. You may contact the instructor prior to registration.
The Academy is not liable for personal injury or loss of property of students enrolled in the school.
Class refunds are given, less $20, only if we are advised one business day before the course begins (see class schedule). Workshop refunds are given, less $20, only if we are advised one week before the workshop starts.
If you don’t qualify for a refund, you may obtain a note of acknowledgment from The Academy Director to enable you to claim your unused tuition as a tax-deductible contribution.
WEATHER: Classes will be cancelled due to inclement weather if the Arlington County Public School system is closed. Tune into your local television or radio station for announced cancellations.
HOLIDAYS: Classes will not be held on national and state holidays. See your instructor when additional days are designated for make-up classes.
SUPPLIES: Your instructor will determine what supplies are appropriate for the course or workshop in the first session or as noted in the class description
