NOTES ON THE NEW WEBSITE


 

Hello!

As you can tell, we look a bit different! We’ve updated our website and class registration system. As with any change, some things will be different but we hope to make this transition as smooth as possible.

CLASS & WORKSHOP REGISTRATION

  • All class and workshop registration will be handled through Shopify’s portal. This system allows us to make swift changes and quick adjustments as necessary.

  • You will have to create a new account with Shopify to register for classes and workshops. Please feel free to shop around and add items to your cart. When you go to purchase, Shopify will prompt you to create an account!

  • If you lose or forget your password, you can regain entry through Shopify’s portal or feel free to contact us directly at info@creativeartscenter.org or call us at (214) 320-1275. We’re here to help!

MEMBERSHIPS

  • YOU MUST PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP ON A SEPARATE ORDER BEFORE YOU CAN ACCESS THE DISCOUNT. We’re working on this bug, but this is the rule for the time being.

  • You may purchase a Membership at this link.

  • Applying Your Membership: When you are checking out in Shopify, there will be a Discount Code text box. You must type in MEMBERSHIP (not case sensitive) to receive your discount.

  • Current Members: If you have purchased a Membership within the last year, we have an account waiting for you! You should have received an email from us about setting up your Shopify account. Check your inbox and spam folder for this email and, if you’ve not received this email, please contact the office at info@creativeartscenter.org or (214) 320-1275. To apply your membership, please follow the directions above in the Applying Your Membership section.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

  • You may purchase a Gift Certificate at this link.

  • Shopify Gift Certificates: When purchasing a Gift Certificate, Shopify will automatically process this item and email you a Discount Code specific to your purchased amount. This code is unique to you and can only be seen by you via the email previously mentioned. Please forward the aforementioned email to your recipient so that they may apply it at Shopify’s check out.

  • Previously Purchased Gift Certificates: All previously purchased Gift Certificates will be honored. Please contact the office at info@creativeartscenter.org or (214) 320-1275 to apply these Certificates.

OTHER NOTES

  • We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, we understand and we are here to help! Please call into the office at (214) 320-1275 and we will do our best to assist you!

  • We appreciate your dedication to our organization and are willing to go the extra mile, please be patient with us as we navigate this change. This is new for us too!
