Spring always brings a sense of renewal and growth. Over the past year at GoggleWorks and in the surrounding arts community, we’ve seen students, staff, artists, and teaching artists come, flourish, and even move forward in pursuit of their next adventure. We at GoggleWorks are forever proud to be part of their story as well as the story of the many artists that pass through our doors. Whenever someone comes in to teach, to work, to play, to explore, they leave an impression, no matter the length of their stay. They are forever a part of the fabric of our community. As we move into warmer temperatures and begin to shed the layers of winter, it is my hope that your art continues to grow, evolve, blossom or even bud with a new venture. In addition to our seasonal favorites and classic core curriculum, this term offers new opportunities to delve into the arts. Explore the brilliant intersectionality of painting and stained glass with Painted Stained Glass Mobiles, or the unexpected and exciting combination of ceramics and basket weaving in Ceramic & Woven Kitchen Set. Get creative with a torch in Introduction to Flameworking, Glass Bead Earrings, or Sculpting Spring Pendants. Celebrate Earth Day through art by joining Glassblown Terrarium, Stained Glass Terrarium, or Ceramic Planters. Whether art is your profession, hobby, therapy, curiosity, passion, or even your guilty pleasure, there is always room for growth, exploration, and play within our walls. You are always welcome in the GoggleWorks’ community. Come explore! Jade Cintron Director of Education

POLICIES PAYMENT Students must pay for classes in full upon registration. We accept cash and checks (on site only) and all major credit cards. Read course descriptions carefully for dates, times, and required supplies. GoggleWorks will send email confirmation after registration. CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS In the event that a student must withdraw their registration from a class or workshop, GoggleWorks will issue a full refund if cancellation is made seven days prior to the start of class. There will be no refunds or pro-rating options for missed classes. No refunds are issued for cancellations made within one week (seven days) of the first day of the scheduled class. GoggleWorks reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient enrollment. If a course is canceled, you will be notified of the cancellation five days prior to the start of class and will be offered to transfer to another course for a substitute or issued a full refund. In the event that a class or workshop is canceled due to inclement weather, GoggleWorks will schedule a make-up date. LOCATION Classes at GoggleWorks are located all around campus depending on your medium. One week (seven days) prior to class, GoggleWorks will send a welcome email including where to find your class on campus. If you are unsure of where your class is meeting, check in at the information desk in our lobby for assistance. Our facility is handicapped accessible. MINORS GoggleWorks requires written permission for all students under the age of 18 who are enrolled in any adult course. Please contact GoggleWorks Programs Department if you are enrolling a minor and a permission form will be provided via email before the start date of the course. This does not apply for Mini-Makers! Family Workshops. WAITLISTS If a class reaches maximum capacity, you will have the option to join a waitlist at the time of registration. If open spots become available in a wait-listed course, wait-listed students will be contacted to register in order of when they were added to the waitlist. If enough students join the wait-list, GoggleWorks will try to add an additional class or workshop. MATERIALS & SUPPLIES Most materials required for your course are included in the price of tuition. If additional supplies are needed before the beginning of class, a supply list will be included with the course description and emailed to registered students prior to the start of class. MAKEUP DATES GoggleWorks does not offer make-up dates for any student who is unable to attend a scheduled class. ARTWORK PICKUP If your class or workshop project(s) requires additional treatment after the course is over, GoggleWorks will contact you when work is completed and ready to be picked up. GoggleWorks does not ship work to students. Student artwork will be held 60 days after course end date. All work is subject to discard after the 60-day period. VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHS GoggleWorks reserves the right to use photographs and/or videos taken during classes and other programs to market and promote GoggleWorks and its programs. Any student or legal guardian who does not wish to have his or her child photographed or photographed themselves, is asked to notify GoggleWorks upon registration.
