Winter Semester News, Shop Video Tour & Knitting During Stressful Times
WINTER SEMESTER ANNOUNCED SOON
We are working on creating our winter semester, which is planned to continue as a hybrid of on-campus and online offerings. Class sizes for on-campus offerings will continue to be limited to 50% capacity and with a strict masking mandate and all other protocols in place, in order to operate safely.
We plan to launch registration in early December. Classes will begin the week of January 11. Registration will continue to be online only. We’re looking forward to working together!
SHOP FOR THE HOLIDAYS AT GAC
The shop and gallery are full of beautiful handcrafted items made by hundreds of American artists, including jewelry, wood, ceramics, glass, ornaments, candles, hats/scarves, metal, holiday decor and so much more.
We are following all protocols so that you can shop safely and comfortably. Friendly staff can help you in any way. If you prefer to shop by appointment, we can do that too. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE WANT TO SEE YOU!
If you’ve taken (or are taking) an online class with GAC, we’d love to see you at work! Please send us your pictures of you at your desk, kitchen table, studio – wherever you are creating art! It will be so interesting to see how you are making things work remotely. Please forward pictures to Lisa at email@example.com.
NYT KNITTING ARTICLE
Did you see this NYT article about knitting during stressful times? If you’re a fiber artist, you’ll love it. If you aren’t, it’s still worth a read because it’s so beautifully written. Enjoy.
