SUMMER ARTS INSTITUTE
Registration and Deposit
To insure a productive workshop experience, we keep our classes small,
usually 4 - 8 students, therefore early registration is recommended. It is
difficult to pull a class together at the last minute, so we encourage you
to register no later than one month before any given class. A $100 deposit
for each class must accompany your registration form to assure your place
in the workshop. Your entire deposit will be applied toward tuition, unless
you wish to apply $25 toward an annual membership. WSW membership entitles
you to discounts on tuition, studio rentals and WSW products. Registration
is on a first come, first serve basis. Avoid disappointment - register
early! Once we receive your registration form and deposit, you will receive
a receipt. As soon as the class is fully enrolled (minimum 4 students), you
will receive another packet from us, containing a workshop confirmation
form, a list of housing options, directions to WSW, and a materials list.
In some cases, the receipt and confirmation form will be sent in one
packet. Please be prepared to settle the balance due on your tuition when
you arrive for the first day of class.
WSW determines whether a class has sufficient enrollment no later than two
weeks prior to the first day of class. If you enroll in a class that is
canceled due to insufficient enrollment, or if it is necessary for WSW t
cancel a class for any other reason, your deposit will be returned to you
in full, or you can opt to transfer into another class.
If you must withdraw from a class before it is confirmed, and you give us a
minimum of one month's notice, WSW will refund $75 of your initial deposit,
retaining a $25 processing fee. WSW does not assume responsibility for
nonrefundable travel and lodging expenses, we therefore recommend that you
wait until your class is confirmed before making these arrangements. Once a
class is confirmed, your $100 deposit is entirely nonrefundable. Please
note that memberships paid for within the SAI registration are
Housing is the responsibility of each student. We have compiled a complete
list of housing options which have proven comfortable and convenient for
our students in the past, including rooms in private homes, bed and
breakfasts, motels, hotels, campsites, etc. This list will be included in
your workshop confirmation packet unless you request one sooner.
Accommodations on this list range from $30-$60 a night.
Your tuition includes catered lunches for both week-long and weekend workshops. Common materials for use in the studio are also included. There are no additional lab fees, however a small materials fee of $15-$30 may be necessary for workshops which require special exhaustible materials, which WSW obtains exclusively for that class. With your class confirmation, you will receive a list of materials that you should bring to class - some essential and some optional. Filling this list is generally inexpensive. Your materials list will indicate whether or not there will be an additional fee, and what it is for.
