The following Registration Policies apply to all classes at the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center.


A minimum enrollment is required. In addition, a maximum enrollment exists to ensure the quality of the student’s experience. Only fully paid registrations will be considered as enrolled. By delaying payment, individuals run the risk of being wait-listed or class being canceled due to insufficient enrollment. Your registration in a class is not guaranteed until your payment is received.

Canceled Classes

We urge you to register at least one week before the beginning of a session, since minimum enrollment must be met for classes to be held. When enrollment is below minimum five days prior to the first day of class, there is a strong possibility that the class will be cancelled. We will make every effort to contact registered students in a timely manner if cancellation occurs. If a class you have registered for is cancelled, you may choose to have your fee refunded in full or transferred to another class.


All refunds due to student withdrawal are subject to a $5 administration fee. Please be certain that you are able to attend before registering for a class. Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center should be notified of withdrawal no later than 2 weeks before the first class; if notification is received after this time but at least 7 days before the class begins, you will also be responsible for the materials fee

Registrations are considered final 7 days before the first class, and no refunds will be given after this time. Exceptions to this policy may be granted in cases of documented family or medical emergency (see front office staff).

The Art Center does not pro-rate fees due to planned absences, minor illnesses, vacation schedules, or other conflicts. Classes are not refunded or pro-rated due to failure to attend.


Needs-based scholarships are available for kids and teens. The Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center’s Application/Scholarship Card is available online. Please note that enrollment in classes is subject to space and scholarship availability. Call the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center at 831-336-3513 to request more information. Scholarships are made possible by a generous donations from Boulder Creek and Felton New Leaf Markets and donations from people just like you.
