The welfare of our staff, teachers, students, and artists is critical.
We are working hard to resume in person classes as quickly and safely as we can. Many of our classes listed below are virtual, offering live student-instructor interaction, using the Zoom platform. As we are able to offer in person classes, class sizes will be small so as to ensure social distancing, and everyone will be required to wear face coverings at all times within the Center. In order to accommodate as many students as may be interested, we will be offering hybrid classes with an in person option as well as a virtual option. The classes described below will indicate whether they are virtual, in person, or hybrid with either an in person or virtual option.
We are pleased to announce a series of week-long summer youth camps. The camps will be for ages 5-7, 8-11, 13-17 and 12-18. They will be small groups (generally no more than 6) in order to maintain social distancing, and will be a mix of indoor and outdoor art activities. Students and staff will all be required to wear face coverings and practice all required hygiene and social distancing. Sign up soon as they are sure to fill up quickly.
We will be opening for limited in Center activities beginning Saturday, June 27, 2020 under the Governor's Phase 4. When you come into the Center, you must observe all posted requirements. You must not enter the building, or must leave immediately, if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (i.e., fever or chills, dry cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, muscle or body aches, etc.). You must wear a face covering at all times or you will be denied entry and asked to leave. You must follow all directional signs and practice social distancing while inside the Center. And, you must practice all CDC recommended hygiene procedures. We take your health and safety - and the health and safety of our staff, instructors, artists, studio artists, and visitors - very seriously.
The majority of the time our staff continues to work remotely and can be reached via email. For our list of email addresses, please visit our About page. If you need immediate assistance, please call our Google Voice number at 585-687-8215.
For the time being, walk-in studio services remain suspended. Studio artists with keyed access are required to wear face coverings, to practice safe distancing and to follow our hygiene and cleaning postings.
