Re-opening Safety Measures

Welcome back students! Here are some safety measures that we are implementing that you should keep in mind when you come for class at the studio.

  • Maintain and reinforce at least 6ft distance between all staff and students in studio
  • Smaller class sizes to maximum 6 students and no walk-ins.
  • Only staff and students are permitted in the studio during class hours. Waiting area is closed, parents may wait in their car in the parking lot. Please see drop-off & pick-up procedure below.
  • Prospective visitors will be advised to email or call us instead of walking in for inquiries during class time.
  • Students will be asked to bring their own art supplies (brushes, pencils, etc.). There are no communal materials (excluding paint and paper).
  • Everyone who enters the studio (students and staff) will be asked to wear a face covering.
  • We will provide a disposable face mask if the student doesn’t have one.
  • Teacher will have minimal contact with students’ artwork
  • Washroom will be sanitized regularly, and is available for student use only. Teacher will use a separate washroom.
  • Students will be asked to take turns to wash their hands, and will be reminded frequently to do so.
  • Hand sanitizers are provided in classroom and hallway
  • Desks, chairs, common area seatings, washrooms & washing area, door knobs and switches are regularly sanitized multiple times everyday and between each class.
  • We will check each student’s temperature at the door and we will send home any student who displays any abnormal temperature, or cold/flu symptoms.
  • All in-person teachers will be screened for their health and recent social activity and contact. We will advise staff to minimize going to crowded places and travelling.
  • Staff are required to wear PPE (face covering and face visor).
  • Staff will be asked to report if they recently travelled or have fallen ill.
  • Contact tracing: if a staff member or student falls ill with COVID-19, we will inform any students and staff who may be affected. All parents are asked to verify their contact information on-file in their Mindbody account to facilitate any contact tracing.
