FAQ’s for…

May my child participate in a paths event if he/she is ‘almost’ the appropriate age?
Your child must be the appropriate age to participate in a PATHS event on or before the first session of the event.

When does ArtsView accept registrations for PATHS events?  We process registrations in the order in which they are received, beginning on the day that registration is opened for that event.  Registrations for each event are accepted until the event is full, or until the event begins, whichever happens first. We may accept late registrations after the first day of an event on a case-by-case basis.

Will I receive a confirmation from ArtsView when I register for a PATHS event? Registration & payment confirms your spot in the PATHS event. If you register online, you will receive a confirmation email. Close to the starting date of the event, we will send an email confirming event dates and times, location and other information.

Does ArtsView have a PATHS event attendance policy? We expect students to attend every session of the PATHS events in which they are enrolled, except in the case of illness or emergency. If your child is unable to attend a session of the PATHS event he/she is registered for, please let us know by phone at 903-236-7535 or by email.

Can parents stay during the camp? In order to provide a safe and distraction free environment for the children enrolled in our camps and classes, ArtsView has adopted a closed camp policy. On the first day of camp there will be a brief parent meeting introducing the staff and volunteers that will be working with your child. After that, for the safety and comfort of the children, yourself and staff, we ask that you not stay at ArtsView during the camp.

What is included in the tuition fee for a PATHS event?
Tuition fees for PATHS camps, mini-camps, and classes include a t-shirt and all supplies.
Tuition fees for PATHS one day workshops include all supplies. (No t-shirt)

Does ArtsView ever cancel PATHS events? Do I get a refund if an event gets cancelled?

  • ArtsView reserves the right to cancel an event if enrollment is insufficient. Any tuition paid will be refunded in full.
  • PATHS events will be cancelled on days that Longview Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions. No refund or make-up times will be provided for events cancelled due to inclement weather.

Do I get a refund if I cancel registration for a PATHS event?  As of 2012, all PATHS events  require a non-refundable fee of $10 for audition workshops, $25 for classes, and mini-camps; $50 for camps.

  • If you cancel your registration after it has been processed we will refund tuition minus the $10 fee per audition workshop, minus the $25 fee per class or mini-camp, or minus the $50  fee for camps.

Do I get a refund if I do not want my child to finish a PATHS event? We want all students to be satisfied with their experience at ArtsView’s PATHS. If, after completing the first session of a PATHS event, you decide that you do not want to continue, let us know before the second session or the second business day, whichever comes first, and we will refund your payment (minus the $10, $25 or $50 fee). After the second session of a PATHS event, no tuition or enrollment adjustments will be made.

Does ArtsView offer financial aid for registration to PATHS events? Need-based fee assistance is available to families who would not otherwise be able to participate in our PATHS events. Fee Assistance is 50% of the listed cost of the camp, and is NOT offered for camps and classes under $60. An application is required. CLICK HERE for the application form.
