Educational Programs Policies and Standards


To provide our high quality learning environment, each and every registrant is an essential part of a workshop. Therefore, we require advance payment. Tuition is non-refundable* within 7** days of class start. A $20 rescheduling fee applies to all cancellations submitted less than 14 days prior to class start. All fees will be refunded if the Center cancels a workshop. Cancellation may be announced by the Center at any time. Cancellation can occur due to under-enrollment, instructor cancellation or other events that are out of our control. In the case of our cancellation, all fees paid to the Center will be refunded to the payer, or credited toward another workshop.

*Health or family emergencies may qualify for exceptions. In this instance a maximum refund of 50% may be granted (case dependant).

**Guest artist workshops require a minimum of 30-day advance cancellation. No refunds will be granted within 30 days of workshop start.


The Center for Fine Art Photography is not liable for injury or accident resulting from participation in our programs. It is the participant’s responsibility to obtain information about any risks involved. Registration in a workshop verifies release of liability of the Center and their instructors.


The Center does not include copyrights or model releases for images created in our classes and workshops. If you don’t have your own form, we have a selection of standard releases available and most workshop instructors will discuss your options during session. It is your responsibility to obtain the kind of release you are seeking from your models or subjects by discussing it with them directly.


The Center adheres to strict observation of non-discrimination in all aspects of our organization. We have firm expectations for student and instructor responsibilities during all workshops; politeness and consideration of instructors, assistants, models and other students is required.
