No refunds for missed lessons.

Please note, you are paying to reserve a spot in class. This spot is reserved until we receive notice from you to drop the class (please see Termination policy)

Make-Up Classes:

There are no make-up classes unless:

a) There is a comparable class available during that calendar month

b) There is space available in that class

Make-up classes must be taken during the same calendar month as the missed class. 

No carry-overs.

Make-ups must be made in age and level appropriate classes and only if there are available openings. 

NO credit or refunds for unused classes (See Termination Policy below)​​

*Substitutes: Send a friend in your place. Clay classes: your substitute must be in the same age range. Painting classes: Your substitute must be a previous or current painting student at Brenda Williams Studio as they must be familiar with our methods and have their own supplies. 

* Vacations: Special arrangements may be made for vacation time during summer and winter school breaks. 


Students are expected to attend classes regularly (either weekly or every-other week). We keep our classes small as we feel it is important to give individual attention to students. It is disruptive to the teacher and classmates when students are absent from class. Please call at least 24 hours in advance if a student is going to miss a class, so class and teatime can begin on time. 


​Student (If Adult) or Parent (if student is a child) is responsible for notifying Brenda Williams Studio, in writing, 30 days prior to any class termination. Payment will be due for the 30 calendar days from the date of termination. You will be charged for your spot in class until notice is received. 


After 60 days, any lost, found or created items (including abandoned pottery) will be disposed of without notice. If it's yours and you like it, take it home. :-)

Brenda Williams Studio is not responsible for any damages during the drying, firing or handling process for any reason.




 All new students will attend a "trial lesson" before formally enrolling in a class. This trial lesson is a regularly priced lesson. This lesson will give the student a chance to figure out if he/she wants to commit to lessons and/or make the investment in the supply list necessary for some classes. 

Also, in order to insure that all of our classes are fun, supportive and harmonious, this trial class gives the teacher a chance to assess whether the new student would be a good fit for a particular class. We reserve the right to refuse instruction to disruptive or disobedient students. 


As a courtesy, Email tuition reminders will be sent the 1st of each month.

However, we are not responsible for reminders that end up in your "spam" folder, are overlooked, or not received. This is simply a courtesy and it is your responsibility to make sure that your tuition is paid on time.

Please make sure that we have your correct email address
