Studio Joy Policies:

Studio Joy strives to be accessible and accommodate the needs of its students. The old building does not allow for ability to accommodate all physical needs YET, but accommodations can be made for table height, type of seating, and most sensory issues. Please communicate your requested accommodations when you register. 
Note: disability access is very important to me. I am currently working out a plan to upgrade the space to make it ADA compliant. This is an expensive venture and may take time to complete in all phases.

The following policies are only for Amanda’s workshops:
Do not book travel until confirmation is received that the workshop has reached its minimum required enrollment. Due to COVID, travel insurance is suggested for a worst case scenario cancellation.

Refund Requests:
Students will receive a full refund of tuition less related transaction fees if a request to withdraw is received by Amanda Jolley, Studio Joy no later than 30 days prior to the first day of the workshop.

Request to withdraw from a course less than 15 days prior to the first class session will not be eligible for refunds.
