Inverlochy Covid-19 T1 2020

Hi Everyone
I hope you are all well and coping with the stresses this unusual event has caused.

Thanks for your patience. As a non-essential service our tutors, committee and myself are in lockdown and working from home; as an art school that prides itself on quality “live” classroom art classes, the technology challenges are proving interesting!

When we started the lockdown there were still two or three weeks for most of the courses to run.
Students have recently asked how they can help Inverlochy through this challenging time so that we can restart classes as soon as possible. 
 
One way that students can help is to waiver any credit or refund for the remaining weeks of Term One. This would go a long way to helping us through the closure, but this is an optional gesture from you. All Term One bookings are eligible to ask for a credit or refund for the remaining weeks and if you do require this please email the office to let us know.    
 
Our focus has been to take care of our tutors well being and try to withstand the stresses caused by the closure and lockdown. Our goal is to open the school again as soon as practical. We thank everyone who has supported us and sent messages of encouragement to tutors and the school.
 
What’s next? We have not been idle over the last week or so and Inverlochy is looking at ways to provide ongoing support for our students.  
 
Some of our tutors have already  arranged "on line" discussion groups and are sending out online materials; others are developing plans.
 
We are exploring conferencing tools such as Zoom to interact with students and provide lessons and feedback. We are also looking at using Youtube to host how-to videos.   Any ideas as to what you may want and how we can make it work would be greatly appreciated. You can email me at the email address below. 

Please keep safe everyone; have a great Easter
 
 

Thanks and regards from the Inverlochy Team.
