Stating in a press release their belief that “interconnectedness is a vital source for creativity,” The Art League began offering online courses in April. These were seen as a safe alternative to in-person classes that temporarily closed because of COVID-19 safety guidelines. And the response to them has encouraged The Art League to continue offering online options.
Here are a few testimonials:
“I’m so glad that classes are continuing to be offered online. Although I live locally, I work with seniors and cannot take the risk of in-person classes at this time. This is a life-saver!”
“I’m a kid in a candy store! I can’t decide which [Art League] class to take first, so I’m taking two. Loving these online offerings, keep them coming.”
The Art League plans to continue online classes until further notice. Outdoor classes will also be held following social distancing protocols. Browse and register for classes HERE.
