Please bookmark this page and check back regularly as we add new classes online throughout the season. Dates and times are subject to change.

Cancellation Policy:  Occasionally classes must be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not met for our visiting instructors, there is a health or weather emergency, or other unforeseen events.  We understand that this may be a disappointment to our students, and we’ll do our best to inform you as early as we can of the cancellation. 

If Oliver Art Center cancels a class, we’ll offer a full refund or credit towards another course, at your discretion.

If a student must withdraw from a class a full refund less $10 processing fee will be issued if cancellation is received at least one week prior to the first day of class. After that time, no refunds are provided. If you sign up for a multi-day or multi-week class but do not attend the entire course, we will not pro-rate the class as we need to pay our guest instructors for your spot in the class.
