When Are Studio Classes Going to Reopen?

May 28, 2020

We miss you all, and are eager to return!  We would love nothing better than to see you in person. As always, we are committed first to the health and well-being of our students, their families and our communities. 

We plan to return:
1. After the state of California, Orange County and our local cities all provide clear direction that we have the okay to open.
2. When we, as a small business, have had time to fully prepare our classrooms and small administrative office for social distancing while also maintaining a high-quality online program.
3. When we feel that it is reasonably safe.

We dearly hope to reopen our studio doors ASAP mid-summer with social distancing measures in place. Weekly classes will continue online throughout 2020 so that families will have a choice. For now, classes all remain online.

We will keep you informed. At least one week before we reopen, you will receive an email with clear instructions on how and when to schedule your choice of an in-studio class, online class, or both!

From our family to yours, thank you for your cooperation and support!

Dear parents,

More than anything, all of us at Art Steps are itching to get back to our favorite place: our wonderful classrooms!  

At this time, we await guidance from our local and state officials on how and when it is safe to return. Until then, we remain dedicated to running 100% of our classes online, providing true instructional value based on our years of experience, fundamental values and skills. 

We anticipate that once we are provided with assurance that we can safely come back, we will most likely need to have social distancing measures in place. Chances are that we will devise a way to run partial in-person classes and workshops in tandem with online instruction in some manner. We are hard at work on developing a strategy, should it become necessary. 

Please check back here often for further updates. Our office does not have further information at this time. I will personally update this site as soon as something changes for us, as we can. Thank you so much for your patience! 

Best wishes to you and your family,
Hilary Key
