Creative Arts Group Policies

Covid-19 Policies for Students, Teachers and Staff

In order to protect Creative Arts Group staff and students, we will continue to require that all adult students, faculty and staff show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 prior to attending an in-person class or workshop at Creative Arts Group for both in our inside classroom and our outside studio. While the Omicron surge has subsided, we do not know if future variants will impact us during the next session, and we are striving to protect our faculty, staff and community. [Those students enrolling only in our online courses will not need to provide proof of vaccination unless they also are attending an in-person class or workshop.]

Creative Arts Group also strongly recommends that all eligible individuals have received a booster vaccine.

 

If you have a medical exemption or other extenuating circumstance, please contact Gwen to discuss at your earliest convenience.

Creative Arts Group encourages the wearing of masks for all individuals working with art materials and visiting our Gallery. Please follow posted signs, as policies change with updated guidances.

Reduced class sizes and social distancing will remain in effect in our indoor class spaces and in all youth classes.

Please wipe down shared surfaces such as tables, pottery wheels, equipment and tools before and after use. Disinfectant wipes and/or disinfectant sprays can be found around the facility.

Do not come to CAG if you are not feeling well or have any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

These policies are aligned with the CDC and the Cal-OSHA Covid and safety guidelines and are subject to change.

Behavior Policy

You will be treated with courtesy and consideration whether in person or by phone, and treated equally regardless of sex, color, race, creed or national origin. In turn, you are expected to treat everyone in a like manner. Students will respect other student’s artwork and not handle or alter it in any fashion. Students are expected to clean up after themselves. Please step outside of the classroom for cell phone calls. We encourage refraining from political, religious or disruptive personal opinions in the classroom. Classes are a time for creative expression in a friendly and nurturing environment. Intoxication, being under the influence of drugs, possession of firearms or explosives, criminal conduct, fighting, violence or threats of any kind, theft of property, dishonesty, spreading rumors or immoral conduct are all behaviors that are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Creative Arts Group is a nonsmoking facility. Creative Arts Group reserves the right to withdraw, at any time, any participant whose conduct is deemed detrimental in any way.

Parent/Child Policy

Children are not allowed in a class unless they are enrolled in that class. Parents are welcome to observe their child’s class, but we ask that you sit outside the studio area and not participate in the class project.
