Solstice Plein Air – Sundown at the Beach

Date: Wednesday, June 21
Time: Sundown – exact time TBD
Registration Deadline: June 18

Paint the sunset on the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice. We’ll meet at sundown at Glen Haven beach (an email with details will be sent a couple of days before the class). Each student will get individual attention to help them progress at their own pace. Cheese and refreshments will be provided.

To ensure the safety of our students and Staff, we have implemented new procedures for our 2022 programs to mitigate the spread of COVID and still allow participants to have a wonderful time creating art.

  • Class sizes will be limited to 12 persons for indoor programs and 16 outdoor programs
  • All students who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home and not attend class.
  • Students and Staff will wash and sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Staff will sanitize common areas and touch surfaces regularly.
  • We have optimized our indoor ventilation system to reduce the risk of germs and contaminants spreading through the air.
  • If Leelanau County COVID-related cases are designated high risk, students and visitors must wear a face mask to prevent transmission.

To keep pace with the evolving conditions related to the pandemic, Staff will inform the GAAC’s new policies or procedures before the start of the course.
