After that time, prospective registrants must call the Studio Art Coordinator at 973.971.3714 at least 24 hours beforehand to check availability.
  • Morris Museum reserves the right to cancel any class before the start date. If for any reason a course is canceled, all registrants will be notified about a week prior to the start of the course and refunds will be issued.
