COVID-19 Precautions: Worktable separations will accommodate social distancing guidelines.  We will wipe tables before and after each class, however, cleaning wipes will be available in each classroom.  As an extra precaution, we suggest each student wipe their space before and after use.  Gloves and masks are not required but are available at the front desk for those who wish to use them. Personal hand sprays will also be available.

We encourage anyone who registers for a class and does not feel well to remain home and let us know.  You will receive full credit for the remaining sessions of your class.
