(If you register for a class you have clicked Accept to this policy!)

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Workshop enrollment is limited. Early registration is encouraged, as many workshops fill quickly.

Catalog Changes

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

Workshop Venue

There are times when we hold multiple classes at the same time. The location of your workshop may be at an offsite. Every possible attempt will be made to let you know as soon as possible so you can make the necessary transportation arrangements.


A 30% deposit is now required to secure your spot in a workshop.  For courses with tuition under $300, the full tuition + $25 registration fee is due at time of registration.  Full payment for “Studio 15” workshops is required upon registration (“Studio 15” workshops are exempt from the $25 registration fee).

Regular Tuition

Regular Tuition for each workshop is listed in the workshop description. Full payment for the workshop is due no later than sixty (60) days prior to the start of the workshop, unless the tuition is under $300, in which case 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.

Cancellation Policy:

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 30% deposit.
  • 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.
  • There are no refunds on “Studio 15” workshops

The Pacific NorthWest Art School is not responsible for providing make-up classes or issuing refunds, credits, or transfers for sessions missed as a result of illness, emergencies, or other events beyond our control. We strongly urge all students to buy refundable airline tickets in case of workshop cancellations or other unforeseen events and/or purchase trip insurance. All information provided to the Pacific NorthWest Art School is kept confidential and is NOT shared, sold, or otherwise used by any entity.

**The listed tuition and materials fees for your workshops covers just that.  Students are responsible for their own travel, lodging, meals and other misc. costs, and those fees are not included in tuition.**

Service Animals: As permitted by law, certified (please furnish us with documentation in advance) service animals will be permitted to accompany a student to class. We ask that you inform us in advance so the teacher may be notified in case there are issues that may impact the instructor and other students as a result of your animal accompanying you.
