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.

 New Website

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.

Moving Forward

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.

During term 2, we have been running online Zoom art classes for the Friday morning Adult classes. These were so successful that we are extending online Zoom Art Classes for both teens and adults in term 3.

To start we will have four classes for teens and adults. Including a teens extension drawing and painting class and an adults building basics art class focusing on landscapes.

As the Coronovirus situation unfolds I have now concluded that the only responsible action is to cancel all Brizart classes immediately and until further notice.

I realise and understand that this will have a substantial impact on my staff, the students and their families and I apologise in advance for the inevitable consequences of this decision.

I hope that it won’t be long before circumstances allow for classes as usual to resume. I will continue to be in contact as events unfold.

Thank you for your loyal support of Brizart over the years. This has been a sad and difficult decision.

I hope that you all remain well and safe, and that these challenging times will soon pass.

Warm regards,

Jennifer Andrews
