We have lifted the mask mandate at Shawsheen Arts Studio. Face coverings are now optional for all staff, students and visitors to the studio. There will be no tolerance for any mistreatment of individuals for their choice to continue to wear a mask.
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please do not enter the studio and call or email us immediately to discuss cancellation or rescheduling options.

RETURNING STUDENT POLICY
Participants are considered "returning" students if they have taken a class at SAS within the past 6 months.
Students will treat the studio and their classmates, teachers, staff of SAS with respect and embrace a judgement free, welcoming and inclusive environment at all times. SAS is a safe space for all ages, gender identities and gender presentations, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, physical abilities, national origins, mental abilities, and religions. The more safe and joyful the space, the more we can feel the freedom to express and be creative!
GENERAL STUDIO POLICIES
Students can arrive 10 minutes early to class to settle in. Parents & guardians are not permitted in the studio during classes, lessons and workshops, unless previously arranged with the SAS staff. If arriving late, student should enter the studio quietly and join the class without causing disruption.
