Program Policies

Ways to Register

Registration and payment can be made online, by mail or in person.

Note: returned checks are subject to $20 fee.

Early registration is highly recommended as classes fill early or insufficient enrollment may cause cancellation.

Course Cancellation

The Essex Art Center reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. In such cases registrants will receive a full refund.

Course Withdrawal

Full refunds are given for classes withdrawn from 14 or more calendar days before the first class, less $15 processing fee. 50% tuition refund 7 days prior
to the first class meeting. The Essex Art Center will retain $15 processing fee on all registrations if a cancellation by the student may occur. Sorry, no tuition refunds after the course has started.

Weather Related Cancellations

In the event of inclement weather classes will be cancelled if Lawrence Public Schools are also closed. Class cancellations due to weather will not be made up. EAC website and phone are updated with any cancellations. For weekend workshops, please call the office to see if class has been cancelled.

Photo Release

Permission to be included in publicity is implied by enrollment. Please contact the office in writing if you do not wish to be included in publicity.
