Registration & Participation

Public participation in The Bascom's classes, workshops and other events is encouraged, but some events will require discussion with the instructor prior to approving your registration. This is to ensure you get the most of your Bascom experience. In some cases, an instructor may determine that another opportunity is better-suited to where you are in your artistic journey.

Refund Policy (Updated 2020)

50% of your tuition payment is a non-refundable deposit. In the event that a student requests cancellation prior to 45 days of class/workshop commencement, he/she will be offered a course transfer or refund of 50% of the tuition payment. If a student cancels within 45 days prior to the first day of class, no refund will be made. The Bascom reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet minimum enrollment, and full refunds will be issued.

Financial Aid

Art classes can be costly, but we do not want financial constraints to prevent you from participating in our educational offerings. That is why we offer need-based scholarships. If you need financial aid, please download the Scholarship Application or contact our Community Outreach Department. Scholarships are generously sponsored by the Cullasaja Women’s Outreach.
