Art Education During a Global Pandemic!

What a crazy few weeks it’s been! As we all try and deal with the trials and tribulations this pandemic brings us, art studios and galleries across the country try to figure out their next steps. The first thing we’ve come to figure out at Studio 23 is there is a new “normal” for the foreseeable future. To keep with social distancing guidelines and to help keep everyone safe, we’re moving to virtual classes. It’s a bit of a change, but we’ve been testing the process enough now to know it’s very conducive to teaching and learning art. So, in the next few weeks you will start to see virtual classes and workshops listed on our website. There’s still a few kinks to work out, some classes may require you to pick up supplies from the studio. But, we’re confident it will work out. We are really excited to figure out this new version of art classes and we think you will be, too!

We’ve also decided we’re going to start loaning out pottery wheels to students. The cost will be $100 and you’re responsible for your own pick up. From there we will have a schedule of drop-off dates for green ware that needs to be fired. If you’re itching to get back on a wheel, this is a great way to do that.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please reach out to me! Or maybe you have a great idea for a virtual class or workshop? Just shoot me an email at studio23.education@gmail.com I would love to chat with you!
