We are asking teachers to please submit a project(s) that has/have not been taught in a 100-mile radius of Bradenton, Florida. Once classes have been chosen and teachers have been notified, we are kindly asking that the teacher and any other retreat teacher in the area, to please not teach any chosen retreat class(s) before the retreat 2019. This does affect your student sign-ups and your fellow teacher’s sign-ups. This is just a request.

Room and Board Registrations MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY January 17, 2019. Room and Board payments may be made monthly by partial payments, but it all must be paid IN FULL by January 17. These payments will be deposited as received. ALL room and board registration refunds will be less $25.00 to cover administrative expenses that have occurred. Your $15.00 annual fee dues are not refundable.
Class Registrations must be selected and PAID FOR by January 17, 2019.
This helps us with class sign-up numbers and informing teachers of how many to prep.
Having payments completed by January 17, 2019 will inform us regarding class registration attendance. Our objective is to keep class selection projects to a lower number so classes will be larger with NO cancellations. This also allows for students to be notified that they have gotten into all their classes. By chance, if a class doesn’t make the minimum requirement that the teacher requests and she cancels, it allows for students to either choose another class or be refunded their class money.
The “Make it –Take it ” evening or a free class will be Friday. Please check brochure for exact information.
Teachers are allowed to bring items that they sell at their business. Once classes are chosen and time slots are arranged, the committee will assure that no teacher will have a back-to-back class without asking first. We realize this does not give the teacher time to clean up and take a breath before the next class starts arriving.
Thank You and Happy Painting,
