A Message from the ACA: Online and In-Person Learning
The Arlington Center for the Arts will be conducting most of our Fall 2020 classes online through virtual platforms. Our efforts to navigate online programming center around how to provide opportunities for arts-based learning and maintain community connection during such unsettling times. As faculty and staff, we have worked all spring and summer to make our virtual campus one where you can find the tools and support needed to learn, grow, collaborate and connect with each
other and your artistic endeavors.
We have also identified a few courses that require physical, in-person learning that do not translate to a virtual format. Alongside our instructors and healthcare experts, we developed an experience for these classes designed to meet the most current recommendations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
