During class, students wore masks, painted outside, and kept their distance. Rather than sharing large gallons of paint, they came to Robin’s “paint store,” a table with various colors portioned into small plastic cups, which were daily sanitized. Plus, students rotated who was in charge of cleaning up after each session.
“The COVID safety precautions made us stop and think about how to maneuver around a space when all of the students need to share the same materials,” Sarah says. “Because of these safety precautions I felt really secure.”
“Despite the circumstances, despite the social-distancing and less time, still seeing a lot of growth in each student has been really exciting,” Robin says. “I had the time of my life. It’s the most fun I’ve had teaching probably ever.”
