Art Classes for Children & Teens
The Dunedin Fine Art Center offers classes for both children and teens, starting as young as 4 ½ years old. All of our classes offer different variations of drawing, painting, clay, computers, photography and much more. Browse all of our children and teen classes below or check out the courses catalog here for complete details.
“If you don’t see a class that fits your schedule, a class may be created for at least 6 participants and contingent on studio/instructor availability.”
Note: These are drop off programs (except family classes). This means that the children’s classes and teen classes are for their respective ages and not for adults/parents. This allows parents to “take a break”.
Our current plan is to resume classes for children, teens and adults, on a limited basis, with our Summer I session, which starts the week of June 1st.
There is a lot of information here about the health & safety protocols we are putting in place to help keep everyone safe & healthy. Please take time to read all of it!
The overriding factor is, that DFAC at a minimum follows City, County and State guidelines. This means, that you will most likely know about changes in the same time frame that we do. We WILL keep this page updated, so please check back, if you have any concerns. : )
What we can tell you is what DFAC has been planning. When DFAC shutdown and cancelled 12 weeks of revenue generating classes, laid off staff and reduced skeleton crew salaries in March, we started to work on adjustments to classes so that when we were able to open, we would be ready. Below is a list of some of the steps that have been addressed:
– Classes have maximum attendance reduced to 9 students. This allows for 1 instructor for a max total of 10
– Studios set up with individual tables/chairs following 6ft social distancing spacing
– Staff/Instructors/assistants wear masks (provided by DFAC)
– Touchless thermometers at 3 main entrances and everyone (all ages) entering the building will be required to wear a mask (not provided by DFAC)
– Hand sanitizing at three main entrances.
– CDC signage
– Studios have sinks/soap/water
– 6ft spacing reminders throughout the building on floors and stanchions
– Sanitizing of “high touch” areas regularly throughout the day
– Cleaning/Sanitizing between class sessions
– Nightly “deep cleans”
We want to do the best we can with keeping everyone Happy and Healthy at all times at DFAC .
Stay safe, healthy and creative!
