By taking this class, you recognize that photos and videos of the class may be taken and used later for marketing and advertising purposes by the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts. These purposes may include, but are not limited to, use on the Turner Center’s website, social media platforms, and press releases. All students have the right to opt out from appearing in marketing materials and can request an opt-out form from Art Education Administrator Hailey Rathmann at hrathmann@turnercenter.org or 229.247.2787.

Refunds: We require 48-hours notice to issue a refund for a class. We understand that sometimes emergencies arise. On a case-by-case basis, your payment may be applied to another class. For summer camps, special workshops, and all classes at maximum capacity, a refund may or may not be given even in an emergency, due to high demand.

Payment: Due to limited availability, no spots in a class can be reserved unless payment for the spot it received by the minimum registration deadline.

Item pickup: Creations from most of our programs can be taken home the same day of the class. Exceptions apply to all creations made in Weekday Pottery Classes, Kids & Adult Pottery Workshops, Stained Glass Class, Fused Glass Class, Glass Arts Open Studio, Flameworking 101, Sculptural Flameworking, and Glassblowing Experiences & Workshops. Creations from the ceramics classes above typically take between three and five weeks to be fired and held for pickup. Creations from glass art classes above typically take 48-72 hours to be fired and held for pickup. Students should receive word from the instructor of when the first available pickup date is, or they will get a call from the Turner Center when creations are being held for pickup. Creations will only be held for 90 days, after which they will become property of the Turner Center.

Accommodations: If you need any special accommodations, or have any special circumstances the instructor should prepare for, please contact Art Education Administrator Hailey Rathmann at hrathmann@turnercenter.org or 229.247.2787.

Attire: Close-toed shoes are required.

Clay and glass supplies: All clay, glazes, and glass materials used must be provided by the Turner Center, unless they are approved as kiln safe by the Turner Center’s Lead Instructor & Studio Manager (Ramiro Santillan, Ceramics) (Lucia Rodriguez Mota, Glass). Using non-Turner Center approved materials may destroy equipment and impact the overall program.

Weekday Pottery Makeup Classes: Student payments are for the month registered for – for example, payments for March Weekday Pottery Classes on Wednesdays 10am-Noon can only be used for March Weekday Pottery Classes on Wednesdays 10am-Noon, unless a minimum of 48 hours notice before the first class is given of need to cancel or transfer the registration (as stated in the refund policy). If a student must miss a scheduled class, they should discuss it ahead of time with the instructor or contact the Art Education Administrator and find another class time to attend as a makeup session. This can only be done twice per month. For any additional missed classes beyond two, or for a missed class that the student does not request a makeup class for during the month the class was missed, the absence acts as a class taken. The Turner Center prioritizes and values all long-term and returning students in Weekday Pottery, and these students have first access to registration in person or by phone. However, due to limited capacity, any Weekday Pottery spots not paid for at least 2 weeks in advance of the next month will be open to the public, and cannot be guaranteed to a returning student (ie. payment for May not made by the beginning of the 3rd week of April means that a student’s spot will be open for registration, and the returning student may or may not get that spot, as it will become available either to waitlist students or to the general public).
