We also want to stress that we want everyone to use their best judgment at all times and make a personal decision for you and your family based on the roads in your area and your feeling about driving to art classes. Even though we may be open for classes, please don’t feel like you need to travel to the studio if you are questioning the trip at all. We understand and you can make-up the class. Ultimately, we want everyone to be safe.
