The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County commences Summer classes on June 20, 2020. The adjusted season will run from June 20 – August 30.

For an arts nonprofit whose main objective is a community flourishing with collaborative creativity, from art workshops to gallery receptions, these have been tough decisions to navigate. But the benefits to returning to accessible art classes can’t be denied, and personal prerogative about whether to register for classes remains. Executive Director, Emily Lightner states, “It’s important to remember to take some time for yourself. 45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body, regardless of artistic experience or talent. Music and art bring people together from all backgrounds. And art doesn’t just unify us — it physically benefits us, too. I encourage you to challenge yourself, step outside of your comfort zone, and sign up for a class.”
The CAC opens its classes asking individuals to take personal accountability and use best practices for the safety of all, such as remaining six feet apart from other students. Our refreshed, updated, open classroom space will make it possible to maintain these protocols. If you show any symptoms associated with Covid-19, please take the time to take care of yourself and get well.
