Guidelines to keep everyone safe

  • Please show up at the studio wearing a mask and/or a face shield. Once you are settled at your table you may remove your mask if you wish as we are then at a safe distance apart.

  • Using a mask and/or gloves while working will be up to the individual. 

  • Enter the door and use the hand sanitizer on the table.

  • Come up into the studio. Use the hand sanitizer in the studio (after touching the stair railing)

  • At your table you will be given a plastic table covering that will be yours for the duration of your classes. Keep it with your art supplies.

  • Using a mask and/or gloves will be up to the individual. PPE not included.

  • As your instructor I will not come close to you and I will wear a face shield the entire class. I will teach from a distance of at least 6 feet away from you. I will demonstrate from my table with an overhead mirror. If I need to see your work I will put on a face mask and stand at the side of your table 3 feet from you. Please let me know ahead of time if you would like me to not come over to see your work.

You will be greeted by me wearing a mask. If you have concerns about being in a room with people not wearing a face mask you can arrange for private classes for maximum safety protection.
