School + Class Information


Classes + Workshops for Adults and Children

GUILFORD ART CENTER is proud to offer a full Summer Semester, filled with a wide variety of classes and workshops for adults and kids (ages 5-12). Due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, everything right now is virtual. All classes in this catalog will take place via Zoom.

Please note these important changes:

  • All registration will be taken online only via the GAC website.
  • Once a registration is received online, the Zoom code and password will be generated and emailed to you. In order to ensure you receive all codes in time, please register at least 24 hours in advance of the start of a class.
  • Each class description includes a list of items/supplies you’ll need to gather prior to the start of each class.

We know this experience will be a little different — seeing things in a new perspective and having flexibility are key! But our instructors are ready to deliver the high-quality instruction and content you expect from a GAC class. And they look forward to see you…virtually!

Financial aid is available for adults and children based on need and interest. Forms are available on our website (see Financial Aid, under SCHOOL tab) and should be emailed to or mailed to GAC, PO Box 589, Guilford, CT 06437. Must be returned by July 1, 2020.

If a program is oversubscribed when a student’s payment is received, the student will be notified and the full amount will be refunded or may be applied toward another course. If a class or workshop is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, students will be notified and full tuition will be refunded or may be applied toward another course. Students who withdraw from a class or workshop up to two weeks before the first class are eligible for a full refund. Up to one week before the first class, students who withdraw are eligible for a credit, less a $25 registration fee. After that, consideration can only be given with a written medical excuse, or in the case of other extraordinary circumstances. Credits may only be for classes going forward from the date excuse is received by Guilford Art Center.

Students missing a regularly scheduled class will not receive a refund or a makeup class.

Classes not held due to bad weather or instructor’s absence will be rescheduled, usually at the end of the semester. Call 203.453.5947 for weather cancellations, which will be announced on the main phone message line .
