Covid-19 Impact

When will we be able to be together again?

It looks like the Late Summer-Fall of 2022!

We are watching and evaluating several factors. COVID remains an ongoing concern on Nantucket. We look forward to the re-scheduling of building and restoration projects and will continue to send update notes… and ultimately our Arts Program start up dates which are now projected for Late Summer-Fall 2022.

  • Over a year of COVID has slowed the timing of NISDA’s Historic Restoration CPC Projects yet to be completed. Contractor crews have been impacted by COVID and scheduled work both at our school at Seaview Farm and Artist Residences have been slowed or halted.
  • The reset of our Art Studios: set-up, equipment and supplies is therefore on hold until the contractors have completed their work yet to be re-scheduled.
  • Planning fewer, even-distanced art programs outdoors is currently impossible and would be a huge concern, considering the sharing of materials etc.

We deeply regret yet another calendar delay as we too look forward to being together again. Meanwhile, we are enjoying the delight and the NISDA memories students, artists, families and former kinder artists and now grown adults are sharing!

Looking Forward,
Kathy Kelm, Laura Herhold and Denese Allen
