GENERAL SAFETY REGULATIONS  

Our commitment to maintaining a safe, healthy environment is priority here at Artcie.  

The studio is undergoing frequent and routine cleaning and sanitizing.  

We clean commonly touched surfaces and heavy transit areas frequently and in accordance with CDC guidelines.  

We have provided hand sanitizer and disposable wipes at frequent touch points for employees and students entering and exiting the studio.  

Class sizes will be reduced to maintain “social distancing” regulations.  

We are asking all parents to please make sure your child uses the bathroom right before coming to the studio.  The bathroom at the studio is limited to emergency use only.  

We will not be offering snack during class, however students are welcome to bring in their own water bottle.  Please make sure your child’s name is clearly written and visible on the side of their bottle.  

Please monitor your child’s health each morning. If they have a fever or show flu like symptoms please keep  them home. We cannot accept fevered or sick children in the studio.  

FROM THE CDC  

If a child or staff has been exposed to COVID-19, regardless of whether the individual has symptoms or not, the child or staff must not be permitted to enter the program space and must be sent home. Exposed individuals must be directed to stay home for at least 14 days after the last day of contact with the person who is sick.  

SUPPLIES FOR YOUR CLASS  

In order to keep hygiene and safety a priority, Artcie has made a small supply list for your child to come to class with. We will provide all other materials.  

  • Please send your child to each class with their own smock (or oversized t-shirt) or wear clothes that can get  messy. We often use paint that will not wash out of clothes.  
  • Please create an “Art Box”/or bag (a gallon ziplock bag works well) for your child with the following supplies 
  • Supply List: two pencils, one eraser, 5-6 crayons or colored pencils, a black sharpie and a set of brushes. 
    • For brushes we recommend “Round” size 4 & 6, “Flat” or “Filbert” size 8 & 12.
    • Brushes can be purchased  online or at any local art store, or for your convenience you can purchase at Artcie for $20.
      • If you plan to  purchase brushes at Artcie, please send your child in with $20 on the first day of class. 
  • Please bring your supplies to every class! Supplies will not be kept at Artcie.  

FACE MASKS AND COVERINGS:  

We encourage the wearing of masks or cloth face coverings during the program day when students are up out  of their seats, and whenever 6 feet of physical distancing is not possible. When students are sitting at their  workspace, masks can be taken off. Faculty will wear cloth face coverings during classes. All adults entering  the building and gathering outside of the building during pick up and drop off must wear a mask.  

DROP OFF & PICK UP PROCEDURES: The waiting room will be closed.  

Drop Off: We are asking all students to wait with their grown up outside of the building until a teacher comes  down to the door. Once the teacher opens the door, each student will be escorted by their grown up to the  studio one at a time. Please wait outside until the person before you exits the building. We are allowing drop  off to begin 10 minutes before the start of class to allow for the longer process. Please say your lengthy  goodbyes outside and be quick and efficient when walking your child up to the studio. If you arrive late and  do not see anyone waiting at the door, please come right up to the studio.  

PICK UP: Please wait outside the building and the teacher will escort students down to the door and dismiss.  Parents must park their car and walk up to the door (wearing a mask). Students will NOT be dismissed out in to the parking lot.  

Thank you for your patience as we navigate our “new normal.” If changes or updates need to be made, we  will notify you accordingly. We can’t wait to see you all, and make this a fun and creative year!
