SPRING 2021 CLASSES AT GRACE INSTITUTE

We are planning classes during Spring Break Week — March 22 & 23, 2021.
More details and class descriptions will be available soon.

During Monday and Tuesday of PPS Spring Break we are offering a few classes in lieu of our usual Spring Break Camp, which is not yet possible under current restrictions.  Two 2-hour classes are scheduled at this point — Pyrography and Mosaic Glass Mirros. We are hoping for four in-person, hands-on studio art classes taught by Grace Art Camp artists, and we will update as this page as plans finalize.

Precautions for COVID-19

Both the CDC and OHA have said that safely-structured, single-session workshops and classes are less risky than multi-session classes. To protect your children and our staff during these single session classes, Grace Institute is implementing many precautions including:

  • Staggered drop-off and pick-up times for parent sign-in are scheduled with temperature checks and a brief health questionnaire.
  • Each participant will have a separate, sanitized bin for a jacket. Please do not bring anything else except a mask and filled water bottle.
  • Each class cohort will have 8 participants maximum, plus an artist and a studio counselor – each with more than 35-square feet of room space per person as required.
  • Masks for participants are required at all times. We will have extra KN95s on hand.
  • Restroom breaks will also be staggered by cohorts, with thorough hand-washing.
  • Restrooms and studios will be sanitized between each cohort use.
  • No guests, parents or additional staff will be allowed into the studio areas.
  • Sorry, at this time, snacks are not allowed.

More specific information will be provided in your welcome letter.
