Updated May 25th, 2021:

As of May 14 Governor Cooper and the NC Department of Health and Human Services revised the Covid 19 health restrictions for all North Carolinians.
Masks are no longer required for those that are fully vaccinated and the social distancing guidelines are eased to allow for larger gatherings.

Florence Art School will continue to limit class sizes to allow for reasonable social distancing . We also encourage students and instructors to continue to wear a mask if they are more comfortable doing so.  

What FTAS is doing:

  • We ask that those who are unvaccinated wear a mask for their own protection.
  • For smaller workshop groups the workshop area can be sectioned off from the general public.
  • Max capacity numbers have been revised to follow social distancing for facility, artists, models, instructors, and visitors.
  • All frequently used surfaces are being disinfected and cleaned daily.
  • The 6-foot social distancing suggested by the CDC should be followed when possible.

What we ask of students:

    • If you are not vaccinated we ask that you please wear a mask for your own protection.


    • Stay home if you feel sick. Do not come to the school. Contact a medical provider and follow their advice.
    • Conduct self-screenings throughout the day – If you or someone around you exhibits symptoms of illness: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other indicators you /they should leave and seek medical attention.
    • Do not gather in one place – entrances, doorways, front desk, etc.
    • Wash your hands with soap and water and use the hand sanitizer regularly, especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces.
    • Avoid touching your face.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze, cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
    • Please follow the FTAS procedures set in order to create a safe environment for all.
    • You are able to eat & drink in the building, but keep a safe distance from others and disinfect your own area after eating.
