•    As a courtesy all Account Credits are valid one year from date issued.

In rare circumstances a workshop may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Classes and workshops may be cancelled for under enrollment one week in advance. If this occurs, enrolled students have the option of a full refund, credit worth the full amount to be applied to another workshop, or credit towards discounted private tutoring.


On rare occasions, instructors may be unable to fulfill their commitment to teach a course. We will do our best to find a replacement instructor of equal caliber to take over. In very rare circumstances, a course may have to be canceled.
•    NO refunds will be given if a substitute artist teaches a class due to the temporary absence of the scheduled faculty member.


If a student needs to miss a class we can do our best to connect you with the instructor to get any material/handouts given in the missed classes. In some cases we can accommodate a discounted make up session with the instructor. Due to the nature of preparation and materials, there are no make up classes for any alternative and historical process classes.

It is your responsibility to obtain the kind of release you are seeking from your models or subjects by discussing it with them directly. Please remember that you will not be able to sell, and may not be able to post your images online without permission from your models. Images created during our workshops may be used solely for your portfolios. Models and athletic teams often expect sample images to be sent to them for their portfolios and publicity. Your copyright should appear on the image. CPAC will often request permission to use your images in publicity for program
