Cancellations, Refunds, Transfers, and Credits. 

As a non-profit organization, AWN is committed to ensuring access to art high-quality arts education and experiences for all. To achieve this, we are committed to maintaining affordable tuition rates, including our pay-what-you-can sliding fee scale, and are unable to provide refunds for registrations at this time. However, we do accept requests for transfers or credit in the event that registrants are unable to complete a class. All requests must be emailed to Please note, transfers are subject to availability and are not guaranteed. In addition, no transfers or credits will be provided for requests received with less than two weeks’ notice.

With consideration of current public health guidelines, AWN may be forced to swiftly pivot to virtual learning, cancel, or postpone in-person programming without advance notice if there is a risk of endangering public safety. Such instances may include but are not limited to State, County, or local government-mandated closures or notification of a positive case of COVID-19 from a participant. If a cancellation occurs due to unforeseen public safety circumstances, AWN will make every effort to transition to online classes and/or reschedule in-person class sessions. In the event that classes must be canceled and cannot be rescheduled, we will issue a pro-rated credit that may be used for future programming.
