I am taking the spread of the Coronavirus and the impact it may have on my students at Creative Art Courses very seriously. I am committed to following the advice and recommendations from the Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. I tend to err on the side of caution when making decisions based on the latest government guidelines.
Firstly, a huge thank you to NHS and emergency staff, and all key workers
who have been putting themselves at risk and working hard to keep us safe.

We are thrilled to be able to resume teaching adult courses from today.
I am following the UK government website for all up-to-date Covid-19 related guidance, procedures and protocols that I am required to follow.
update 28 September 2020
