Dear School of Art Students,

Update on classes, artwork pick up, and answering frequently asked questions. We have been busy working hard on many new and exciting School of Art activities at the Canton Museum of Art:

• Our summer exhibits just ended and the museum is closed while we setup for our new Fall exhibits.  All artwork will be available for pick up during regular museum hours starting August 25th. 

• A variety of all new online virtual classes will be starting in late September. In-person classes will not be held this Fall to ensure both our instructor’s and student’s safety. A schedule will be posted online and an email will be sent within the next few weeks. 

• All artwork that was left here from the School of Art Open House First Friday event is still here and safe.

• Ceramics pieces are almost completely fired, this includes Summer Camp, the Mug Making workshop, and Ceramics classes. Thank you so much to our Canton Ceramics Potters Guild volunteers for all of your hard work over the last few weeks!  A handful of pieces from our regular ceramics classes were not able to be glaze fired due to not having enough pieces to fill the kiln. Once we open back up and more pieces are glazed they will be fired. 

• Ceramics students wishing to clean out lockers and finish glazing remaining work will be able to sign up for a ticketed time slot to come in. This is to ensure that we do not have too many people in the ceramics studio at one time. We will be sharing a link for this as soon as it is available. Ceramics studio hours will not be available to create new student work or trim work, only to finish glazing work. Cleaning and sanitizing procedures (listed in the room) will need to be implemented by anyone using the space.  

• Special accommodations to pick up items before August 25th will not be available due to the museum being closed. 


Thank you everyone for your support, patience and understanding during these unprecedented time. We sincerely hope that we will see you for online classes or at the museum very soon!
