Dear Friends & SBAP Supporters

During this time of recommended 14 day quarrantine for the Covid-19 Virus we have decided to close all programs at SBAP starting March 16th - April 1st, and plan to re-open on Thursday April 2nd. We thank you in advance for your support and understanding during this time of struggle for everyone. In the coming weeks we will provide more information about extended open studio times and dates to make-up for the closure March 16th - April 1st. Students who have tickets to the Clay Date Class, BYOB and Open Workshop Reservations will have the option to reschedule by sending us a text or calling 314-773-3633 or email. During this time of crisis we recognize the need to shift our focus to better serve our community and ask that you continue to support us in any way you can. In the next few days we will publish more resources to support your creative processes during this time of social distancing. Thank YOU in advance for your continued support!
