North Tyneside Art Studio Closure

Dear All

Due to the current outbreak of the coronavirus NTAS will be closed from Wednesday 18th March @ 4.30pm until further notice.

This decision is to protect the health and wellbeing of members, staff and volunteers and is taken in accordance with the most recent guidance that advises all non-essential contact to stop. We’re really sorry to have to take this course of action and hope you understand that this is a difficult but necessary decision.

We will be posting lots of information, links and activities onto our facebook page https://en-gb.facebook.com/NorthTynesideArtStudio/ so please stay in touch and be part of our online community where we will all do everything we can to support each other.

If you have any artwork in progress that you’d like to continue from home please arrange to call in to the studio before 4.30pm tomorrow (Wed 18th March) to collect it.

Staff will be working from home so will still be contactable via our email addresses (see below) or via our general email of info.ntartstudio@gmail.com.

Please note that we will still be able to make foodbank referrals for members during the closure period – please just email.

We urge everyone to keep themselves safe and informed and follow the advice given by the Government and NHS https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
