Home / ISLAND ARTS / Policies


Courses at the Island Arts Academy are kept small intentionally and most have a minimum and maximum size. Please register early to reserve your place in the course(s) and workshop(s) in which you wish to participate. Courses/workshops with insufficient enrollment by 7 days prior to the starting date may be cancelled. Within 7 days of the starting date, please call or email academy@islandarts.org to see if space is still available in the course(s) in which you are interested.

Registering for a course is easy. Simply complete the above registration form, enclose your check or credit card information for the total due, and mail to the Island Arts Academy Dean. When your registration is processed, you will receive a confirmation packet by return mail.

Island Arts Academy will maintain a waiting list for those courses which are filled to capacity. Individuals on the waiting list will
be notified if space becomes available.


If the Academy cancels a course, registered students will be notified and receive a full refund for that course. If you must cancel your participation in a course for any reason, as long as you do so at least 7 days before the class, you will receive a refund less a 20% cancellation fee to cover administrative costs. If you cancel less than 7 days before the course begins, no refund will be  issued. To withdraw from the class, email the Academy Dean at academy@islandarts.org or call 802-372-5363. Your cancellation will not be completed until you receive an email acknowledgement of your request.

Limited financial aid may be available to permanent Grand Isle County youth on a first come, first served basis. If you are applying for financial aid, your registration and application must be received at least 30 days before the class date. Contact the Academy Registrar for more information.
