Enrich the resiliency and vibrancy of individuals and communities through joyful learning, creative cultural expression, and appreciation of folklife

Dear Arbutus Supporters & Students,

Our state has now entered a phased reopening model based on regional case data. As of Friday, 1/15/20, our region remains in Phase 1. As a result, Arbutus’ face-to-face classes remain suspended through Friday, 1/29/20. Thank you for your understanding as we adhere to state guidelines to support our community’s health and safety.

We will miss seeing you in our woodworking, ceramics, and blacksmithing classes for the next few weeks, but look forward to resuming classes as soon as restrictions are lifted. When we kick back off, we will be offering all the courses currently affected by the state mandate, as well as restarting fiber arts and other much-awaited subjects. We look forward to a great course catalog for the new year!

We understand that art and art-making are important in our lives at all times and even more important this year as we distance physically from one another.  We remain committed to keeping our community strong and creative in this challenging year.

Stay tuned, and stay safe,

Arbutus Board of Directors & Team
