WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY – Please read
The California Central Coast Pastel Society is a group of dedicated artists and teachers who have come together to bring you the finest in pastel art education. As a new non-profit pastel society, we know that one of the biggest challenges we face is paying for nationally known teachers to come to our small Central Coast area. When someone who registers for a workshop does not show up or cancels at the last minute, we are still responsible for bearing the costs. In every case, we have a student minimum that must be met in order to host these events. Last minute cancellations or no-shows of even one person can make the difference in the sustainability of our society.
Cancellation Policy for California Central Coast Pastel Society Workshops:
Workshop space is filled on a first come, first served basis. Your spot is not guaranteed unless and until you prepay for it in full. Most workshops do not have a payment plan. When there is a payment option, final payments are due 6 weeks before the first day of the workshop. If you do not pay in full 6 weeks before the workshop begins, your space will be given to the next person on the wait list. This is because those who are on the wait list must be given reasonable opportunity to make travel plans. If you are in doubt about whether a payment option is available, it’s a good idea to contact us and ask.
Cancellations made 8 weeks or more are fully refundable. There is a $100 fee for all cancellations made less than 8 weeks in advance. Cancellations made less than 4 weeks in advance are non-refundable unless you are able to find a replacement for your reserved space.
If you need to cancel within 2 weeks of the workshop, if you do not show up, or if you leave an event early for any reason, no credit or refund is given.
We appreciate your understanding
