Policies and Information
Refund Policy - Important!
Classes and adult workshops: a 90% refund is given upon withdrawal in writing 5 or more business days before first class meeting. Withdrawal must be in writing. No credits or refunds are given on withdrawals less than 5 business days before the first class meeting. When a class is canceled, students are issued a full refund.
Vacation week programs: supervised lunch, extended day and workshop fees are non-refundable.
From time to time our in-house photographers and members of the news media take pictures of students participating in classes and programs, as well as their artwork. If you have any concerns about being photographed, or having the images being reproduced for promotional purposes, please let us know when you register.
Entrances and Accessibility
The Higgins Education Wing is accessible through the Lancaster Street entrance. Wheelchair and handicapped access is available through the Tuckerman Street entrance. Please let us know if you have any mobility needs or concerns when you register. Free Museum parking is available on Salisbury, Lancaster, and Tuckerman Streets.
Spray paints, fixatives, and aerosols are prohibited in adult and youth classes. We recommend the use of non-toxic no odor solvents; ask your instructor for more information. The Worcester Art Museum is not responsible for materials left on the premises.
Unfortunately, we are not able to send out confirmations. If you would like to confirm your registration, please call the Registration Coordinator at 508.799.4406 x3129. The Worcester Art Museum reserves the right to cancel any under-enrolled course, to restrict the registration in a course, to change instructors when necessary, and to reschedule individual classes as needed and appropriate. If the museum finds it necessary to cancel courses or make schedule changes, every effort will be made to notify registered students.
