Creative Ventures Gallery is run and staffed by professional artists who want to share their knowledge with members of the public. One way to share is to show and sell their work outside their studio settings but the other way is to teach. CVG offers ongoing weekly classes as well as short workshops. The weekly classes are centered on the individuals learning needs and the workshops are geared toward everyone learning a certain technique. Click on the Classes or Workshops pages to see our current offerings.
Below are our policies about class/workshop registration and payments as well as the refund policy. We live in New England so we expect to have a snow issues.
Register for CLASSES and WORKSHOPS with a credit card or with PayPal through the website or by calling the gallery at 603 672-2500. WORKSHOP students MUST prepay. Checks may be mailed and made payable to Creative Ventures Gallery, 411 Nashua Street, Milford, NH 03055. Please indicate the class/workshop name and time as well as a phone number and email address contact of the student or parent.
As of May 1, 2022, adult classes will be $12.50 per hour. Class payments are expected on or before the first class of each month. No refunds for no-shows unless we have received notification. If you need help to pay for something listed on the website, call the gallery at 603 672-2500.
If a class is canceled by the instructor, any prepayment will be applied to the next class. If a student misses a class, the class must be made up within one month of the missed class. Make ups will not be carried over longer than that. The method of makeup is at the discretion of the individual teacher. Many teachers teach more than one class per week so you would e able to attend another session of the same class. Otherwise, prepayment for that class meeting will be forfeited. Please advise us at 672-2500 or contact your teacher if you will not be attending class. This will ensure the holding over of your prepayment.
Creative Ventures will be closed during the day when the Milford Schools are closed. Check out the current closings at https://www.wmur.com/weather/closings#. For evening/weekend classes, please contact your teacher. Those missed classes will be made up the following week. The workshop teachers will have access to the phone numbers that we have gotten from PayPal contact info (make sure that is up to date), so be on the lookout for a call from them in the case of a cancellation. Workshops will be made up on the preannounced snow date.
