Community Programs

Monson Arts is dedicated to being a vibrant resource for art and creativity in the local community. In addition to programming community workshops and events, we are actively developing educational partnerships with area secondary schools under the belief that intensive programs in a professional art center can be a catalyst for how students perceive themselves as creative people.

Community Program Registration

Monson Arts is committed to providing creative experiences for our local community. These programs vary in materials, methods and experience required. Offerings will be one or two day programs. Accommodations are not provided for these programs.

Enrollment in each program is handled on a first-come, first-served basis and will be available until the program is full. If a workshop is full, you can contact our office to be placed on the waitlist free of charge. If space becomes available, we will let you know.

Anyone participating in a Monson Arts workshop in 2022 will be required to show proof that they are up to date with COVID19 vaccinations before the start of their workshop session.

Fees

The cost of participating in community programs will vary depending on materials provided.  Some programs may request that you bring certain inspiration or specific items to the program. Fees will offset provided materials. Payment in full is due at the time of registration.

Cancellation Policy

We understand the difficulties of planning to participate in a workshop program during the pandemic and have adjusted our cancellation policy to allow for maximum flexibility. If at any point you need to cancel due to illness, risk, or restriction we will make a full refund of your program payment. If we decide that it is not possible to safely operate and cancel or postpone a workshop, you will be notified and receive a full refund.
