Class Policies

Registration & Confirmation

Your enrollment is finalized upon registration and payment, which are only processed if there is room in the class. Columbia Center for the Arts (CCA) keeps class sizes small to facilitate personal interaction between the students and instructors and meet COVID guidelines. Instructors determine their own maximum enrollment based on the type of class and their own preference.


We require full payment to reserve your spot in class. You may purchase your class admission online, in person at the CCA gallery, or over the phone. Payment may be rendered via credit card, check, or cash. Returned checks will incur a $50 charge.

Course Cancellations

We reserve the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. In the case of CCA cancellation due to low enrollment, we will notify students & parents by e-mail and/or by phone by Friday, at the latest, before the Monday a class is to begin. Full tuition for cancelled courses will be refunded via check.

Refund Policy

Class tuition is non-refundable; no refunds will be issued after registration and payment. If a student is unable to participate in the course, their registration may be refundable, in certain cases and at the discretion of the CCA.

Youth Policies:

Parental Responsibilities

CCA is not responsible for supervision of children outside of scheduled class hours. Parents may drop off students no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of class, and are responsible for picking them up promptly at the scheduled end of class. Parents are responsible for notifying CCA if a child will be absent, will arrive late, or will be picked up early, as well as of any other special circumstances.

*During COVID: Parents must provide their children with a face mask & instruct them that it is to be worn at all times during class/camp unless eating or drinking.
