Terms and Conditions


Please note that the Academy cannot be held responsible for the content of external internet sites which may be reached by links from the Art Academy website.

All information is correct at time of publication. While every effort is made to offer the courses set out in the Academy Prospectus and on this website, the Academy reserves the right to withdraw particular courses and to change both the content and the pricing of a course when need arises, without prior warning. Participants who have already paid in full for a course will not be subject to any such price increase. Minor changes of course content will not be considered to affect our cancellation policy, as set out in the Academy’s Refund & Transfer Policy.


Courses often run on Bank Holiday Mondays – please check the course document carefully.



If a course is cancelled by the Academy, participants will be notified and given the opportunity to transfer to another course. Otherwise the full cost of fees will be refunded within three weeks, under normal conditions. We shall not be liable for any other consequential loss.


Cancellations on the part of the participant made less than 14 days before the start of the course are non-refundable. Cancellations made before that time will incur a £20 administration charge.


Transferals from one course to another may be made up to two weeks prior to the course start date, subject to availability.


In the event of staff illness, we will attempt to find a substitute tutor. If this is not possible, the class will be postponed, participants will be notified and the class will be rescheduled. Alternatively, the missed hours may be added to the remaining course classes.


Non-attendance of classes due to illness, or for personal or professional reasons does not provide the right to refunds, extra tuition or transferal to another class.
