How big are your classes?
The Ah Haa tries to keep classes small, they typically range from 5-15 students.

What if enrollment is low?
The Ah Haa School and its instructors reserve the right to cancel classes with low enrollment before the first day of class, but will generally make every effort to enroll additional students before canceling. If the minimum class size is not met, registered students will be notified and refunded.

Can I enroll in a class that has already started?
Yes, but only if there is space available and at the instructor’s discretion.

Why should I register early?
The class you want may be full or may be cancelled if the minimum enrollment is not met one week before the class starts.

What if I need to cancel or transfer a class?
Full tuition, less a $25 non-refundable fee, will be returned when cancellations or transfers occur 14 days or more before the class starts (with the exception of the Visiting Artist program and the Telluride Painting School, where cancellations must occur 45 days prior to the beginning of the class). Please call 970-728-3886 or email rachel@ahhaa.org to cancel your class or transfer your registration. No refund will be given when a cancellation is made less than 14 days before the class begins.

Can you hold a class space and pay later?
