Planning now with Covid precautions in mind:
- We will have an online show for sure and a physical show if possible
- The physical show will hopefully be open to family, friends and the public with the current Covid restrictions in place.
- Drop-off art dates and times will be scheduled for each school's students in the days preceding the physical show.
- Appointments may be made available for cohort groups to view the gallery at specific times.
