TBSSS is thrilled to announce the gradual re-opening of our School.
As we send out this month’s eNewsletter, we are welcoming back our first students since the COVID-19 pandemic to our Studio Access program. In mid-July, Term 3 classes will resume as normal (and bookings are now open). And thanks to the generous support we have received through the City of Sydney’s grants program, we have been able to offer 1-on-1 mentoring with our teachers to returning students, either online or in person.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, procedures at our School will have to change slightly. Classes will be smaller, new hygiene and cleaning protocols have been introduced, and social distancing will be maintained. But what is most important is that we are able to, once again, offer a space for our community to explore and pursue their love of sculpture in a safe environment.
Our Board, teachers and office staff have been heartened by the warm and supportive messages we have received from students in response to our temporary closure, and now our re-opening. The support of our community has been crucial to navigating this strange and unprecedented time. It is clear that, for our students, sculpture class provided both a social and expressive outlet in an otherwise busy week.
But now we are back, and we look forward to welcoming our students back to our School. It’s been too long!
