Session 2: 11/2 - 12/17 (no classes Thanksgiving week)
We will evaluate the situation and post an update for 2021 classes in December.

COVID-19 Precautions

To keep everyone in the in-person classes safe we are following CDC and NH.gov guidelines:

  • We are limiting the number of students to five per class.
  • We are following an enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocol
  • We are requiring everyone to wear a face mask
  • We are asking to keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet from other people
  • We encourage practicing frequent hand hygiene/washing and provide hand sanitizer
  • We will ask you about experiencing common Covid symtoms and may check your temperature (touchless)
  • We are asking everyone who is not feeling well to please stay home.

How ONline Classes work

When you register for a class we will set you up an account for you on the online school website artstreamstudios.com/school where you can find specific information information and the video link for your class using Zoom. Zoom runs on computers, laptops, tablets and phones, is easy to use and many people are already familiar with it.

An art-kit with materials for the kids classes can be picked up the week before classes start: on Thursday Sep 17th and Friday Sep 18th between 3-6pm.

We also have set up a gallery to upload photos of your artwork to share with us and the class.

 

About our classes

Most classes are divided into six-week sessions to allow plenty of time for student exploration of the medium in use and completion of work. New lessons each week all year long.

If you have any questions about which is the right class for you or your children please give us a call at 603.516.8500.

 


Feel free to contact us via phone 603-516-8500 or at info@artstreamstudios.com with any questions.

A note to our community:

We at artstream are deeply saddened by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and hundreds of other Americans who have been killed because of their skin color. It's time we all stand up in our communities and support people of color both here at home and in the rest of the country. We want to amplify the voices of those who need it most, of those who have been unheard for so long in their own country. We believe that Black Lives Matter. We are listening, reading and supporting the movement to help make a positive change in the gross inequality for indigenous, brown and black people of our country. There are many resources out there to get started and a good place to start is: http://www.ACLU.org and #BlackLivesMatter
