Classes and Workshops FAQs

All classes and workshops will be paid in full at time of registration.

What if I need to cancel or change my workshop?

Cancelling your class registration more than 7 days prior to the class will result in a full refund less the credit card fees if you paid by credit card.

Transferring your registration to another class or to a gift certificate toward a future class can be made with no fee up to 7 days before a workshop start date.  

Cancellation within 7 days of a workshop start date results in the full loss of tuition. 

In the case that I am unable to attend a workshop, can I give my space to a friend?

Yes, though we ask that you please let us know if someone else will be taking your place in a workshop.

I can’t make all the days of the workshop; can I still take it?

In most cases, students can take part of a workshop, though you should let us know so we can check with the teaching artist. In general, workshops are not pro-rated if you are unable to attend the entire session.


What if PAG cancels a workshop?

In the event of under-enrollment, the Portsmouth Arts Guild will cancel a scheduled class within five days in advance of the start date. In this case, tuition will be refunded in full.
