In order to safely increase class sizes to pre-pandemic numbers, The Art Center will be requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccinations in order to register for the 2021 Fall class session.

The Art Center has suffered substantial financial losses for a year and a half due to social distancing guidelines which required significantly smaller class sizes. The Art Center cannot continue to incur these losses and still remain financially viable. At the same time, several of our instructors and students, as well as our entire Artability program student base, are at high risk for complications from COVID-19. In order to help protect the health of instructors and students, proof of full vaccination will be required for all adult classes. Some classes will also require the use of face masks, in addition to proof of vaccination (at the instructor’s discretion). Face masks will still be required throughout the rest of the building.
