New Protocols for Returning to Campus

Welcome Back to the Classroom!

Guilford Art Center is very pleased to welcome back our community to our campus. We can’t wait to see our students and visitors in person!

As GAC resumes on-site operations, we are working hard to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, students, faculty, and staff. Nothing is more important as we strive to continue to serve our mission.

Following all Connecticut state guidelines, and with careful planning specific to our organization, we have implemented new safety and cleanliness measures. We ask that everyone respect these guidelines for the benefit of our greater GAC community. We need to work together and take care of one another to ensure everyone has a safe and positive studio experience.

All our guidelines are posted on our website. Please review them carefully before arriving on campus. Very important: Masks must be worn at all times. Masks should cover an individual’s nose, mouth and chin. Please plan to arrive on campus with your mask. There are special guidelines for the pottery studio, metals studio and weaving studio. Click here to see all of this information.

These guidelines are part of an evolving plan and subject to change. We will continue to monitor state and local health department notices and adjust GAC operations as necessary.

If you have questions or need more information, please reach out to Maureen Belden, GAC Executive Director at

Thank you!
