Catalog Changes

Every effort is made to keep our catalog as accurate as possible.  However instructors do change workshop dates on occasion.
Please use the dates on this website as official as they are updated as soon as we have new information.

Annual Registration Fee

Beginning January 1, 2017, an annual, non-refundable registration fee of $25 will be collected with each deposit. For students who take multiple workshops in one calendar year, the $25 fee will be applied to the admin fee for the first workshop and then refunded for subsequent workshops. The annual $25 registration fee does not apply to “Art Year Round” workshops as the tuition is under $100.


A $125 deposit is collected to secure your spot in the workshop for workshops with tuition under $695. $100 will be applied to the workshop tuition and $25 to the administrative fee referenced above.  For workshops with tuitions over $695 the deposit is $275.  $250 will be applied to the workshop tuition and $25 to the administrative fee referenced above.  For courses with tuition under $300, the entirety of the tuition is collected as deposit, along with the $25 administrative fee with the exception of “Art Year Round” workshops. Full payment for “Art Year Round” workshops is required upon registration.

Regular Tuition

Regular Tuitions for each workshop are listed in the workshop description.
Full payment for the workshop is due no later than forty-five (45) days prior to the start of the workshop, unless the tuition is under $300 and the full tuition is due upon registration.

We no longer keep credit card information on file for the purpose of charging balances.  Please contact us or use the web site to pay the balance.


Transfers to another workshop must be made forty-five (45) days or more prior to the start of a workshop within the workshop year.


Students will receive a full tuition refund only in the event that the Pacific Northwest Art School cancels a workshop.


  • All requests for withdrawing from a workshop must be in writing.
  • For withdrawal requests received forty-five (45) days or more prior to the start of the workshop, the Pacific Northwest Art School will retain the non-refundable deposit ($100, or $250 for classes with tuition over $700).
  • If the withdrawal request is received less than forty-five (45) days prior to the start of the workshop, full tuition is forfeited.
  • For withdrawals after a workshop has begun or “no-shows,” full tuition is forfeited.
