Guilford Art Center (GAC) announces its reopening for the fall semester, which will begin the week of Monday, Sept. 14.
The fall semester of classes will include a hybrid selection of on-campus and online classes. Small-sized on-campus classes will meet to ensure proper social distancing; there will also be a robust selection of online offerings for those who choose to study remotely.
The GAC Shop will be open for public hours to be announced by early September. The shop is also open for online shopping as well as by appointment.
GAC’s campus has been closed since March, due initially to the pandemic, and subsequently for the completion of construction/improvements to the school building. Online classes and workshops were offered throughout the spring and summer, and the shop has been open online. An in-person reopening, with state-approved guidelines, is designed to safely accommodate the community.
“We are so happy to be able to welcome back our community members to our campus,” says GAC Executive Director Maureen Belden. “We have guidelines in place to safely open our doors for students and visitors, including protocols for social distancing and wearing of masks. We’re also pleased to continue offering online classes so that we can serve all of our students in the way they feel most comfortable.”
