COVID-19 Update from Guilford Art Center

April 24, 2020

Due to unknown variables of scheduling, and the fact that Connecticut schools are closed at least through May 20, we regret that we must cancel all spring classes and workshops, as holding even a shortened semester is not feasible.

Our primary concern is for the good health of all in our GAC community. It is our fervent hope that we will be together again soon. But, as for so many worthy organizations at this time, we are also concerned about GAC’s financial health, and the importance of continuing to be a strong and positive force in our community.

In this regard, many people have asked if they can help us, and our answer is a most appreciative “Yes, thank you.” If you would like to help, you can do so in a number of ways:

  1. You can make a donation to our Annual Appeal, which will help us with crucial operating funds.
  2. You can become a GAC Member or renew your membership. This support provides key funding, and in turn members receive some great benefits.
  3. You can request to convert your spring tuition to a donation to GAC by contacting Suzanne Hens-Kaplan.

In the meantime, we’ve created a range of online classes, demonstrations, tours and ideas to keep you inspired while we remain at home. See our Online Learning page for all the options; we plan to update this page weekly.

And you can help us by keeping connected! Please check out the GAC Facebook page. Let us know how you’re doing, share some of your ideas and inspirations that we might share with others in our community. Let other people know how much you’ve enjoyed your classes here, our gallery exhibitions, the fantastic one-of-a-kind works you’ve found in our shop. We are here for you, and are looking forward to being with you again soon.
