Responding to Pandemic Challenges
Brizart is in business! Not quite business “as normal”, i.e. not the pre-COVID-19 “normal”. It’s a new normal! A positive response to the challenges presented to us by the current pandemic.
Shortly after the March lockdowns, Monica Davidson from at Creative+Business, presented a series of supportive and informative webinars. These webinars targeted the creative industries, all of which were, and still are, reeling from the impact of this pandemic. Two of these webinars, I felt, were particularly well-targeted. These were “Crisis Marketing” and “We Will Survive”. Inspired by this advice, the fantastic Brizart staff pooled their talents and planned for uncertainty and restrictions.
As part of this moving forward, we now have a fabulous new website, created by Peta McDonald-Smith at Moonstone Creative. This site provides us with the potential to host online classes via Zoom.
So check out Brizart’s new website and see what’s on offer.
Classes From Our Studios to You
These classes are not demonstration videos. They are classes that comprise demonstrations, in-time instruction, and discussion, as students work through the hands-on process of creating art. These on-line, Zoom classes create a platform in which to continue creating and learning as members of a group, even when social distancing is a problem. These art classes are aimed at upper primary, teens, and adults.
Tutors and students are keen to get back to “normal”. But until the time is right to resume in-person classes, we are offering an alternative. An alternative that is fostering collegiality, and the continuation of learning and creating in the visual arts.
Feedback from the Zoom classes has been extremely positive. I have been delighted with the outcomes of our first Zoom Art courses and single classes. I look forward to posting some of the works created in these classes, both in this blog, and also on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
We are currently developing more art courses and art classes for you! These will be added to am looking forward to adding these to the online schedule.
