Summer Program Policies

Welcome to the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Please read our policies carefully before registering for Summer Programs. Enjoy your art experience!

The Art Center offers four methods of registration: online, in person, by fax, and by standard mail. REGISTRATION BY PHONE IS NOT ACCEPTED FOR ANY PROGRAM.

Student Behavior: The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey reserves the right to dismiss any student for inappropriate behavior.

Payment Procedures: Each session must be paid in full at the time of registration. A $25 fee will be assessed for any returned check.

Refund Policy: Refunds for canceled camp/portfolio sessions will be handled in the following manner
Cancellation 14 days or more before the session begins: 80% refund
Cancellation 7 – 13 days before the session begins: 60% refund
Cancellation 3 – 6 days before the session begins: 40% refund
Cancellation 0 – 2 days before the session begins: No refund

Photographs: The Art Center will occasionally document programs using photography or video for promotional purposes only. If you do not wish you child to be photographed, please notify the Art Center in writing.

Junior (under 18) Students: The Art Center reserves the right to remove, without refund, any child whose age is misrepresented during registration from any session or program. By registering a teenage student under 18 years of age parents or guardians grant permission for the student to attend a program which uses a life model.

Make-Up Sessions: The Art Center will only be closed for the dates listed in on our website. Sessions canceled due to holidays, instructor absence, inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances will be rescheduled as a make-up session. Students who miss a session on their own accord will not receive a refund, letter of credit or make-up opportunity.

Student Substitutions: No student substitutions are allowed. Only students enrolled in a certain program can attend that program, unless they have the expressed permission of the Director of the Studio School.

Student Property: The Art Center is not responsible for artwork and other property left on the premises and has no liability if such property is lost, stolen or damaged. The Art Center does not have the space to store artwork between sessions. Any artwork left after the session ends will be discarded.
