Registration Information and TDS Policies

Your artistic success is very important to us, and so is your privacy, safety, and security. If you have any questions about these policies, please do not hesitate to email us at tds@thedrawingstudio.org or call at 520-620-0947.

Enrollment

Students are accepted into classes on a first-come, first-served basis with rare exceptions. Most classes are suitable for all skill levels (unless otherwise indicated) but you are welcome to call us if you have specific questions about whether a class might suit you. You may register for classes online, over the phone, and in person. If a class has filled, you may call us to be added to the waiting list.

Class Schedule Changes

TDS reserves the right to make change to the class schedule as necessary, though we make every effort to avoid this. Students will be notified of any changes with as much advance notice as possible, and accommodations will be made for refunds or TDS credit accordingly.

Class Supply Lists

Supply lists can be found online (even without logging in.) From the Adult Class page, follow the link for online registration, and search for your class. View the full detail page for supply lists and teacher contacts. 

Student Drop/Withdrawal Policy

You will receive full TDS credit or a refund if a class is cancelled, or if you withdraw two or more weeks in advance of the class start date. Students withdrawing between two weeks and 24 hours of the class start date may request a 50% refund or full TDS credit. No refund or credit will be given once a class begins. 

Class Cancellation Policy

Classes may be cancelled 48 hours before the first class if it does not meet the minimum enrollment. If this happens, we will issue a full refund or TDS credit. All refunds are sent via check to the student’s address on file. Please allow up to 14 business days for your refund. 

TDS Member Discount

TDS members receive a 10% discount on class registration online, over the phone, and in person. You may join or renew your membership here. If you are purchasing or renewing a membership and then registering for a class, make sure you purchase your membership first so the discount can be applied. 

TDS Accessibility

TDS strives to make all classes, workshops and community activities accessible for people with all types of disabilities. If you would like more information on our facility or classes in this regard, please call us. 

Personal Property

TDS is not responsible for any personal property left on the premises. TDS is not liable for student projects left on the premises for more than two weeks. We do maintain a lost and found; if you think you’ve left an item here, please call or stop by the studio. 

Privacy Policy

TDS never rents or sells your contact information (email, phone number, postal address). Your information is only used for communications and work directly related to TDS. If you would like to opt out of email communications at any time, you can click the Unsubscribe link included at the bottom of every TDS e-newsletter. You may also email or call us at any time to be removed from our print or electronic distribution lists.

Data Security

TDS is committed to providing the highest level of security possible to our students, members and donors. To process class registrations, memberships and donations, TDS uses third-party software vendors. This software includes security features to ensure transactions are protected from fraud, viruses, and other malicious software. We also protect account information by ensuring it is only accessible to qualified TDS staff and volunteers. 

Photography and Promotion

TDS may photograph adult classes, or public or private events on occasion, and you are free to opt out. Your photograph, likeness and name may be used for promotional purposes to further our mission as a nonprofit. We use these photographs and depictions only for communications and work directly related to TDS. We do not photograph children under age 18 or participants in our outreach programs without written or explicit permission. Additionally, you may share your photography with us. By sharing your photographs, you give TDS authorization to use your images for promotional purposes in support of our mission.
