ALEXANDRIA, VA-During the pandemic, The Art League has held virtual classes for people interested in exploring their artistic creativity. On Monday, April 5, in-person classes will resume at The Art League’s Madison Annex at 305 Madison Ave.

“We can’t wait to welcome back our students to in-person classes at The Art League!” said Suzanne Bethel, Executive Director. “While we love our Zoom sessions and all the new inspiration and creativity they’ve sparked, we missed that magic that happens in our classrooms. We’re eager for this fresh start and new phase for our in-person art students and teachers.”
CDC, Alexandria, and Virginia Department of Health guidelines will be followed. Attendees will be required to wear a mask and maintain a distance of six feet from one another. There is regular cleaning at Art League facilities as well as air filtration systems. Temperature checks will be performed at the door.
Lisa Semerad will be teaching the course Drawing and Painting Projects, where viewing pieces up close is ideal. Of the safety measures in place, she said, “”I wouldn’t be there if I didn’t feel safe. Moreover, I am hearing from my students that they are looking forward to getting out of the house, seeing classmates, and returning to the artwork that gives them joy.”
