Art Mania Studio has a ‘No Refund’ policy except in circumstances where AMS cancels a course – in which case AMS will transfer the student into another course with no extra charges.
Non Refundable Circumstances
AMS will not usually refund course fees where the student requests the refund because they’
- change their mind about attending the course after the course commences;
- move out of the area;
- if a student has not attended for a period of 3 months and has had no contact with the studio during this time the fees paid and any materials left at the studio will be forfeited.

If you have already booked your spot in a workshop, and are unable to attend it, please give us 2 business days’ notice in order for us to transfer you into another workshop of your choosing, otherwise your deposit is non-refundable.
Can someone else take my place for a workshop?
Yes, although you must contact us to enquire if they are suitable for the course (in the event there is prerequisite knowledge or a specific age range). We also must have all the replacement’s contact details so we can inform them of requirements and any announcements before the workshop begins.
Are there any extra costs involved on the day of the workshop?
Sometimes. The cost of extra materials can sometimes be added. Courses may also cover the cost of materials but participants who wish to delve into an even larger project can buy other materials to suit their idea. Please check the website description of the class or workshop carefully to know what your options are.
