Dealing with the uncertainty of rapidly escalating COVID-19 metrics, availability of vaccines, holiday gatherings and possible restrictions on non-essential businesses demands that we proceed cautiously as we develop the 2021 class schedule. Instructors and students are reluctant to confirm in the current pandemic environment.

We are continuing to communicate with potential instructors for 2021. The following classes are in the planning stages: three new VMFA sponsored classes, visiting artist instructors in oils and acrylics, and RAL Art Center artist instructors in jewelry, quilting, perspective, acrylics, watercolor and felting.

We look forward to offering exciting new classes in 2021 and appreciate your suggestions.  Please email cmihills@fiberarts.us with your suggestions for classes and instructors.
