COMMUNITY BITS

Welcome Home Watercolor by Dave Murphy

COVID-19 Guidelines Updates are posted at KIFA to protect both Patrons, Visitors and Members. KIFA will be following the advice of Health officials and the Governor, of first wearing of face masks inside our building, as well as keeping social distances of 6  feet apart, and the use of sanitizer before touching anything in the gift shop, as well as using disposable gloves when handling the artwork. We would be only allowing 20 people at a time in the building to allow for safe social distancing. We will be holding receptions, and other events outside as much as possible. 

To further air quality safety, we now have a portable air -purifier in use in the downstairs classroom. We limit class size to no more than 6 persons in the classrooms. 

Stay safe, continue to be creative, and hopefully we will see you soon.  

ATTENTION KIFA ARTISTS!!
Some Frames are Available in Good Condition in boxes under the tables in the downstairs classroom for a small donation

Members:

1 piece = $15  |  Up to 3 pieces = $20

UPDATED KIFA HOURS

 The KIFA Board of Directors voted last this week to shorten the hours at

KIFA that we are open to the public to
Wednesday through Saturday
1:00 to 4:00 pm
& Sundays 12:00 to 3:00 pm

This is so we may be able to fill the open hours with the number of volunteering docents we have. Those hours have already been posted as such on the sign out front.
