Fluid Art Experience Health & Safety Briefing
The Fluid Art Experience team continues to work hard to ensure a safe environment for everyone during the Event this year.
Fluid Art Experience needs every Fluid Art Student to do their part and most of all, be respectful of others and do the right thing. Of course, we would love for everyone to attend the Fluid Art Experience this year, however, we understand that some will be hesitant. We ask that those who attend do so because they are willing to follow our health guidelines – not because it’s mandated, but because it’s the right thing to do.
During these times, we acknowledge that no event can be completely risk-free, and we’re counting on you to do your part to help us present as safe of an event as we can by following the below health guidance, which is subject to change:
If you’re fully vaccinated, thank you! If you’re not, now is the time to be protected for when the weekend event arrives. That’s the best thing you can do for yourself and for everyone, especially children under age 12 and others who cannot currently get vaccinated. It’s widely recognized that the vast majority of all current COVID-19 cases are among unvaccinated people. While we will not (and cannot legally) require you to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test to enter the Event, if you’re not vaccinated and plan to attend, we urge you to do your research, talk to your doctor, and consider a vaccine, both for your safety and the safety of others.
Individual classroom requirements
Please note that due to the blowing technique that will be used in classroom with Waterfall Acrylics only Vaccinated students will be able to book the Beginners classes, non vaccinated students will be able to book the Intermediate classes. We are sorry for any upset that this may cause but we hope that you understand that the opportunity of contamination is exponentially higher due to not being able to blow onto the canvas through a mask.
Make an informed decision about attending the Event
Before you visit, make sure you’ve considered your personal health situation and how you can best keep yourself and those close to you safe and healthy. The Texas Department of State Health Services has a comprehensive webpage on COVID-19 with the latest information on testing, vaccinations, symptoms, what to do if you feel ill, protecting yourself and others, and more. Visit https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/ for more information.
Wear a face covering
Masks protect everyone. Plan to bring a mask for yourself and everyone in your party with you to attend the 2021 Fluid Art Experience. Wear a mask in the following settings if you are older than age 2 and medically able to wear one:
Indoors, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. As of August 25, given the current situation with increasing COVID cases in Dallas County and the current Dallas County order on the Required Use of a Face Mask in Certain Public Space, masks will be required when indoors. Wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, regardless of your vaccination status, can help protect you and everyone in close proximity to you.
Outdoors in crowded settings, especially if you are not vaccinated.
At some independent vendor booths who may require everyone in their booth to wear a mask.
Again, we ask that you bring your own mask with you to the Event, but if you forget yours, we’ll have a supply in our classes for you. Just ask at tutor when you enter the classon.
The event space is sizeable but the class room sizes are tight in order to allow the most amount of people to attend the event as safely as you can. In the classrooms you may not be 6 feet away from your closest student.
Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands frequently
There will be free hand sanitizer stations are made available by the Fluid Art Experience throughout the location.
Stay home if you’re not feeling well or you’ve had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
Get tested and get well before you visit the Event. If within the 14 days before you attend the Event you have tested positive or presumptively positive for COVID-19, experienced any related symptoms or been in direct contact with or in the immediate vicinity of any person who is confirmed or suspected of being infected with COVID-19, even if you do not have symptoms, please stay home.
Most of all, please respect your fellow Fluid Art Students
We’re all in this together. Please practice patience and be kind to those who showed up to work and serve you at the great Fluid Art Experience.
