Policies

 

REGISTRATION

We strongly encourage you to pre-register to ensure a space in class. We keep class sizes small to allow personalized instruction and a quality experience for participants.

 

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

1) Classes may be cancelled when enrollment minimums are not reached.  Classes, workshops and special events not meeting enrollment minimums will usually be cancelled two to three days before the start date. Students will be notified if classes are cancelled and will be eligible for a full refund or class credit.

2) Tuition is refundable for all classes and workshops, minus a processing fee of $20 for each class dropped, if we are notified at least TWO WEEKS prior to the class start date.  Students may opt to receive a full studio credit in lieu of a refund.  Cancellations within one week of class start dates receive a 50% refund. Parents/students are responsible for notifying Blackbird Arts that they wish to drop a class or workshop; not attending class does not constitute an official withdrawal from class or cancellation fees. There are no refunds once a class has begun.

3) Friday Family Art Night classes/reservations are non-refundable. However, if we have a waitlist for a class, we will make every effort to help you exchange your reservation with another family.

 

MISSED CLASSES

If you must miss a class, you are free to try another age-appropriate class during the same session, if one is scheduled and we have availbility. No refunds are given for missed classes.

 

LOW ENROLLMENT

Blackbird Arts does reserve the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment. If a class is cancelled, students are eligible for a full refund. A minimum enrollment of 5 students is usually required for a class to run. Please register early to ensure your preferred class will run.

 

CANCELLATIONS DUE TO WEATHER

Blackbird Arts follows the Northwestern Michigan College schedule for inclement weather cancellations. If TCAPS is closed, we are still OPEN.  If NMC closes, we close. If possible, we will reschedule a class; if this isn't possible, we will refund/credit for the missed class. We will post any cancellations on Facebook and on our website.
