We offer generous flexible interest-free payment plans and are happy to support you in joining The Lab.

We do our best to keep tuition costs reasonable for artists.
Fall 2024 session has necessitated a small tuition increase in some Labs. 

We guarantee no additional increases for 2024-2025!


No full or partial refunds once sessions begins. This assures commitment to the process, builds continuity, confidence, and integrity between members, and protects the nature of the relationships built in the meetings. While we understand that life happens, we ask that everyone do their best to clear their schedules for all dates. Switching groups is not possible once the session begins. 

Due to the impact on the curation and small number of artists in each group, $100 deposit is non-refundable for cancellations by artists. Deposits are fully refunded if Lab changes dates, your application is not accepted, and for special circumstances. No deposit refunds if artist cancels within 14 days of the first session.

Checks via snail mail are always welcome:
