  • If a class is canceled by The Atelier at Arlene’s, payment may be applied toward another class/workshop,a credit, or refunded to the student.

  • If the student withdraws one week prior to the start of a class/workshop, tuition and can be retained in a residual account to be applied to a future class, or refunded to the student.

  • If the student withdraws less than one week prior to the class/workshop start date, or after the class has started, no tuition or materials fee will be refunded. Please understand that our faculty are under contract and that space/materials have been acquired one week prior to class start date. There are no exceptions.



  • Classes: The only way a student can reschedule a missed day of a class is if there is a reason that is beyond your control, like a death in the family, and either the instructor or Arlene's was notified prior to the day missed. If neither of these actions have been taken we assume you are a "no show" and forfeit that day of the class. "No shows" are not eligible for rescheduling. Please keep in mind that you are only eligible for rescheduling a date in future section of the same/similar class with the same instructor. If there is another section of the class running during the same time period but at a different time of day you can attend one of its sessions as way to reschedule the missed day. When rescheduling the class we ask you notify the instructor and Arlene's so we can make the appropriate accommodations. Please so not just show to a class without notifying us as to avoid unnecessary confusion and disruptions to class.
  • Workshop: Same roles apply to Workshop however you will be given a credit for a future class or workshop of your choosing.


The Ateiler at Arlene's cannot pro-rate single or multiple sessions of a class and is not responsible for classes or worklshops missed due to illness or other commitments.

Arlene's reserves the right to change policies at anytime without notification. Please contact us if you have any questions.
