In light of the present COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking precautions to ensure that staff and students are safe. Workshops have now begun again in July 2020 with safety and sanitization processes in effect according to the Government of Alberta standards.
Workshops are designed to give students more in depth information on specific topics. The workshop program generally consists of a variety of one to five day intensive courses taught by professional, working artists. Typically, workshop hours are 9 AM to 4 PM with a one hour break for lunch. Workshops are offered for different skill levels. Most require a certain level of experience, unless otherwise noted, so please read all course descriptions carefully. Supplies are not included (unless otherwise noted). Deposits are required to register and cancellation fees apply.
We require 7 days' notice before the date of the class or workshop you are registered in for you to receive a full refund. There is no refund available with less than 7 days' notice, with the sole exception being if Kensington Art Supply or one of our instructors must cancel the class or workshop. In this instance, the full fee will be refunded, or you may have the fees applied to another class or workshop. If you must miss a class or workshop, you may find another person to take your place and you are responsible to receive payment from them. In this case, please let us know their name and email in case they need to be notified about supplies required or other information pertaining to their class or workshop.
