IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
To ensure everyone’s safety, please note that the class format has changed. Below are the new class format and guidelines. Please read them carefully before signing up for the classes.
The class size will be limited to a maximum of 4 students, and they will be seated 6′ apart.
All classes, including the ones that were previously held at the McKinney Art House, will be held at Noriko DeWitt Art Studio until further notice.
Safety Procedure for All Students
If you or any family member in your household are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend the class. Email or text me immediately to notify the absence
Everyone who enters the classroom will be asked to wash their hands in the hallway bathroom with soap before the class starts
To ensure the safety of others, you must wear a face mask when entering the studio and throughout the duration of the class. Students without a mask will be asked to leave the classroom. You might like to consider wearing a pair of gloves during the class, but that is optional
I have hand sanitizer, but my supply is very limited. Please consider bringing your own hand sanitizer or wash your hands in the hallway bathroom
Maximum of 5 people in the studio
To avoid having too many people in the studio at once, parents are asked to pick up their students outside the studio
You may attend the class only by appointment. Please do not attend the class unannounced to maintain an accurate count of the class
Parents and students who wish to speak to me before or after class in person will need to set up an appointment via email to prevent having more than 5 people in the classroom and to ensure thorough disinfecting in between classes. If the communication can be done via email, please email me instead.
Keeping the classroom safe
To ensure adequate time cleaning and disinfecting between classes, please do not enter the classroom earlier than 5 minutes before the class starts. I will be asking students to start packing away 5 minutes before the class ends. Parents, please pick up your child promptly on time
To accommodate cleaning time, the Saturday late afternoon class will start 5 minutes later, from 3:45-5:45
Until further notice, no art supplies will be shared. Please bring your own pencil sharpener, graphite pencils, eraser, ruler, and other supplies. Drawing paper and tracing paper will still be supplied. Students, please don’t share art supplies with others unless you live in the same household!
If you are in the high-risk group and/or do not feel comfortable taking the class in person, please consider taking my online art class
