Workshop Policy:  Workshops must be paid in advance, by cheque by the 15th of the month and postdated for the day of the workshop.  Minimum number of registrations is ten (10) artists. If fewer than ten people register for a workshop, that workshop will be cancelled.

We request that you arrive by 8:45 a.m. at the latest to set up.  We will begin at 9:00 a.m. sharp.  Payment is due when registering for a workshop.  Cheques are to be made payable to Dartmouth Visual Arts Society or DVAS - one separate cheque for each workshop.  Please date the cheque the day of the workshop requested (as cheques become stale and non-negotiable after six months). Indicate on the cheque the name of the workshop or the artist.

Cheques will not normally be returned.  Note that in the event the workshop attendance list becomes full, priority will be given to paid-up members.  Also in excess of full attendance, a waiting list will be used.  Two weeks notice is required for cancellation.
