Keeping Safe

More than Masks

We want to keep us all safe. We ask everyone who visits the ArtCenter to wear a mask. They are required if you take a class here. We clean all areas 3 thimes a day and between classes and practice social distancing. Thanks to a grant from Manatee Cares, we have purchased tabletop partitions for our classrooms, auto hand sanitizers for galleries and entrance/exits points, disinfectant sprays and wipes. Our business depends on keeping us all safe and we are working hard to do so. We hope you'll visit us soon.
