Dana here to update our community on the re-opening status of SVP. Whew, where do I start? It's been a roller coaster ride as we navigate evacuations, color coded tiers from the Governor and where we as an art organization fit in the re-opening plan. What we can tell you is that we are anxious to get back into the studio and see all of your faces (hidden behind masks of course) again. We are, of course, limiting our class sizes now depending on where they take place in the studio, and requiring masks at all times. Social distancing stickers have been placed, sanitizing stations are available and labeled, and we are (hopefully) doing all we can to ensure proper adherence to County and State guidelines as well as our own safety procedures for our students and staff.
As the air is clearing up and as long as the weather stays warm, we will continue our outdoor classes such as "Watercolor for the Soul" and "Making your own plant based paint". Those workshops we cannot offer outdoors such as Blacksmithing and Bladesmithing will be returning soon at half capacity to ensure safe distancing. We so appreciate all of our community's help and support during this transitional time and we will strive to continue providing you the best quality art education possible!
