  • OFAI participants will be required to wear face masks in all indoor spaces, including classrooms and studios.
  • Non-participant guests will NOT be permitted at OFAI activities or events, including meals.    
  • Class sizes will be limited so that participants can be safely distanced.   
  • Unless otherwise requested, private guestrooms will be included in the scholarship and tuition costs for all participants.

Terms of Registration

If you are unable to attend a workshop for any reason, please notify the Oklahoma Arts Institute immediately so that your place may be filled by an applicant from the waiting list.

EDUCATORS RECEIVING SCHOLARSHIPS: if you do not notify us of your cancellation or cancel fewer than 72 hours before the start of your workshop without a doctor's note or other evidence of an emergency, you will not be eligible for an OFAI scholarship in the future. Additionally, scholarship recipients who cancel after enrolling in a workshop two years in a row will not be eligible for a scholarship in the future.

ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS: if you cancel more than 14 days before the first day of the workshop, your tuition and $100 deposit will be refunded. If cancellation notice is received after the 14 day deadline, and the workshop place cannot be filled, participants will forfeit the $100 deposit. If you cancel within 72 hours of the beginning of your workshop, you will forfeit the entire cost of your workshop. In the instance that the Oklahoma Arts Institute is forced to cancel a class, your tuition and $100 deposit will be refunded.

The Oklahoma Arts Institute reserves the right to substitute faculty members. In all such cases, an attempt will be made to inform participants of a faculty change as time constraints will allow.

Participants agree and understand that, unless the Oklahoma Arts Institute is otherwise instructed in writing, enrollment constitutes a release to use their name, written comments, and likeness, including any audio recordings, video footage, or still photographs of them taken during OFAI, in publicity for the Institute.
