Covid-19 Mandate Changes  

As June 11 approaches and the state of Kentucky will be lifting the mask mandate, The Artistry would like to follow guidelines to keep all of us safe. I have been fully vaccinated, and many of the students have either been vaccinated or have had the Covid-19 virus. I am aware that there are students (and me) who are ready to go maskless and there may be those that would be more comfortable to remain masked in art class. And those who have not been vaccinated and have not had Covid-19 may still need to wear a mask. So I am asking everyone to let me know what you feel most comfortable with. I have and will continue with my Covid-19 precautions, such as sanitizing, ventilation, and air purification with a virus killing air purifier. Please contact me or have your student let me know what you prefer to do. I have always had my students safety as a priority and will continue to do so. Thanks so much, Alison
