  • What’s your inclement weather policy?
    The Ankeny Art Center follows the Ankeny school district for closures, so if the schools are closed for weather so are we. Your safety is important, so if you feel unsafe driving please stay home.
  • Can I get a refund for a class?
    Should minimum enrollment not be met, class will be cancelled, participants will be notified and a credit or a refund will be issued. If you withdraw from a class up to the day prior of the first class meeting, you will receive a refund minus a $10 processing fee or a full credit towards another class registration. After that time no refunds will be given.

    We offer tours and special group painting classes. Please contact to discuss details and pricing.
