Education

About Our Programs – now ONLINE

We are known for our exceptional classes and workshops for children, teens and adults in a variety of subjects.  We offer visual arts, literary and performing arts, movement, and fashion/textiles, among others. All our programs focus on developing both personal and artistic skills. They are led by accomplished teaching artists in small-class settings where learners are valued as creative, innovative individuals regardless of their challenges, goals or life’s work.

CLASS POLICIES*

FOR GENERAL INQUIRIES: Call 609.716.1931, Mon-Fri, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., or email info@westwindsorarts.org

FEES: Prices go up incrementally in the lead-up to the start of classes, so early registration is recommended. All classes with insufficient registrations will be closed 48 hours before the class is scheduled to begin. We can run a class only if we know we have enough enrollment to pay our teaching artist. If you don’t register, we may end up cancelling a class that you want to take, so don’t delay!

CLASS REFUNDS: No refunds issued unless class is cancelled by the West Windsor Arts Council or for medical withdrawal. In case of medical withdrawal, a doctor’s note is required and a $25 administrative fee will be charged. Cancellations arising due to an Act of God will be credited to a similar future event.

CLASS CLOSINGS: Please carefully review your class dates for pre-scheduled “no class” closings and mark your calendars. Visit our website for up-to-date alerts regarding weather-related closings.

MAKE-UP CLASSES: In the case of a student’s absence due to illness or other reason, we regret that we cannot offer a make-up class. Teaching artists are paid for hours as scheduled and understandably cannot teach, unpaid, for a child who misses class. Please check your schedule carefully before enrolling to make sure that you have no schedule conflicts ahead of time.

Concerned about finding the right fit for you or your child? Give us a call and talk it through. We can help you to find just the right class to fit your needs.
