In compliance with the recent orders, and in the best interests of the safety of our students and staff, we have made the very difficult decision to close the school until further notice. Our hope is to postpone the remainder our Spring Session of classes. The Spring Session was scheduled to run through April 25, 2020. At this time, we are cautiously optimistic about reopening and continuing the last six weeks of the Spring Session of classes in May/June, provided we can safely do so. This will additionally eliminate our Post Session of classes, which was scheduled to run from April 27—June 8, 2020.
We will continue to closely monitor the status of COVID-19 and stay in communication. In a couple of weeks, we will hopefully have a better idea of when we can safely open. As for many organizations, non-profits, and small businesses, this pandemic has created a very painful financial strain on our school. We appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and support during this uncertain time. Together, we will weather this unprecedented emergency, and ensure that when the pandemic is over, The Baum School of Art will be able to continue our 94 year legacy of community arts education.
While our physical location is not open, we want to remain active in our mission of enriching lives through arts education with innovative content and programming in a virtual format where we are able. Please follow us on social media. We will be posting videos and demos in a variety of media from some of our instructors during this time. We hope you will keep expressing your creativity during this break and we look forward to classing resuming and making art together again at The Baum School of Art. Please stay safe, stay home, and stay creative.
