Frequently Asked Questions:

No, you do not need to be an artist. Many of our students are beginners with little or no experience. The class description will specify the level of difficulty or if any previous experience is needed.
If your class meets before 5pm on a weekday, park on the street and feed the meter. There are several metered parking spaces on 5th Street and State Street. (Fifth Street meters allow you up to eight hours.) Erie Insurance has graciously allowed us to park in their lot across from the Museum at 5th and French Street after 5PM and on weekends.
The adult classes are recommended for students ages 16 and older. If you have a student that is younger contact us to see if this is right for your child.
Sorry, we do not offer prorated classes. You may be able to make up missed classes before or after class, depending on instructor’s availability.
We are able to issue a refund as long as you cancel before the 2nd class session. You’ll get a full refund minus a $10 handling charge. No refund will be made if a student cancels after the second class, whether or not the student attended the class. If a class or workshop is cancelled by the Museum due to lack of enrollment or another reason a full refund will be issued.
