Education Policies

CLASSES/WORKSHOPS

The Cultural Center of Cape Cod offers a wide range of classes and workshops for all levels of art. Each class is presented by an artist who has extensive knowledge and skills in the subject he/she presents. All classes are limited to a certain number of attendees to maximize their learning experience… and yours. New classes are added frequently.

Classes for adults generally run from four to eight weeks. Lengths of classes are noted in class descriptions on our website.
Culinary Classes are held as one individual class.
Workshops are one- to three-day intensive art instruction.
Workshop Series run over the course of multiple months.

MATERIALS

Specific materials required or suggested for classes or workshops are the student’s responsibility. All classes and workshops will have a materials list on our website on the appropriate class page. Students should be prepared to bring materials to the first class.

CHILDREN

Teenagers are welcome in most adult classes, but please check with us.

The Cultural Center complies with the Massachusetts CORI regulations regarding teachers and others working with children.

CANCELLATION

Cultural Center reserves the right to cancel a class or workshop due to low enrollment, instructor cancellation, or other events beyond our control. Students will receive notification and a full refund.

If weather presents an issue, please call us to see if your class or workshop will run.

If a class or workshop is cancelled due to weather or another unpredictable event, the class or workshop will reschedule.

REFUND POLICY

The Cultural Center leaders do not believe in rules that are too inflexible to take unusual circumstances into account. We also respect the integrity of our patrons.

We therefore do not have a hard-and-fast refund policy.

If you need to cancel a reservation for a class or event, please make every attempt to give us the time we’ll need to fill your seat. Please also consider the ramifications of your cancellation, especially when an instructor/performer is traveling from a distance, purchasing materials in advance, and otherwise counting on the reservations/registrations we’ve reported.

If you have a true emergency and cannot attend, we will refund your money or issue a gift certificate for another event/class.

If you do not have a true emergency, please do not ask for a refund.

All refund policies are negotiable with staff approval.
