Life After Lockdown!
Updated: Jun 2
We have lots of artists and models keen to return to Life Drawing after Lockdown and we're looking forward to being able to get back to drawing as usual, but with a few post-lockdown changes...
Currently (at May 31st 2020) Community Halls are still restricted from use by the State Government, but this is likely to change in the next few weeks as restrictions are gradually lifted. Grace Art Events will have to submit a management plan to the Property Committee upon our return to make sure that all our artists and models are kept as safe as possible. This plan will include things like physical and social distancing requirements (which may mean that we will need to take pre-bookings for classes to ensure we don't have too many people at any one time). Hand sanitiser will be available at entry and exit points of the hall, and high contact points will be cleaned and disinfected before and after classes. Cashless payments will be encouraged at all classes via our Square terminal. Previously it was possible to purchase tickets via Eventbrite Ticketing also, but all our non-cash payments will be through the Square terminal in future. All attendees at class will also need to provide their name, address and telephone number which will be kept on record by Grace Art Events for a period of 28 days in case contact tracing is necessary. This is as much info as I have for now... but I'm looking forward to getting in touch with you again shortly with some more concrete dates and details!
In the mean time, I'd love to hear from you with any questions or concerns you may have. If you're keen for some Virtual Life Drawing Sessions to keep you going, there are a number of classes advertising on the Brisbane Life Drawing Classes Facebook Group. And if you're anything like me... you've been spending some time sorting other parts of your practice or business! In between home schooling, I've been getting on top of my admin, money and business planning and I'm keen to share some arts business and money tips with you as well! We've been hard hit as an industry and I'm keen to share some vital survival tips for creatives over the coming weeks to help get us all back on track! Starting with Miriam Castilla's 5 Day Money Magnets challenge starting on Monday June 8th! Find out more here. Another glorious day of golden opportunity awaits us! Lots of love, Sarah.
