Masks are currently encouraged but not required for all staff, students, instructors, and visitors to Maude Kerns Art Center. Masks will continue to be optional as long as Lane County is identified as medium or low risk by the CDC COVID - 19 Community Health Levels. If the CDC identifies Lane County as high-risk masks will become required. Students will be notified of any changes.
MKAC will not require proof of vaccination for adult students. MKAC has never required proof of vaccination for our youth or young adult students.
We have made changes to our Education Program for this upcoming term by limiting our class sizes to a maximum of 10 students for our Adult classes, 10 students for our Young Adults, and 12 students for our Youth programs.
All staff members, instructors, and education volunteers will need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Exemptions may be made only for eligible medical or religious reasons. There will not be an option to opt-out for other reasons or choose testing in lieu of vaccination.
*These policies are subject to change based on current Covid-19 conditions, as well as OHA and CDC guidelines/recommendations.*
Full refunds or credits will be offered if cancellation is made 10 business days or more prior to the start date of the class, workshop, or camp.

No refund or credits will be given for cancellation requests made 5 business days or less prior to class, workshop, or camp. There are no refunds after the first session of the class, workshop, or camp.
No refunds, credits, or make-ups are offered for individuals who miss a class session.
We are currently offering scholarships for 50% of the cost of tuition for classes. Scholarships are available for all age groups through the Susi Larsen & Cameron Serbu Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Madeline Christenson Scholarship Fund.

MKAC has a parking lot for art students, visitors, and staff. If you happen to arrive for your class and the parking lot is full, please come into the office and grab a parking pass. This will override the street parking time limits for your class time!
In the event of bad weather, the Art Center will close if Lane Community College is closed. Classes for that day will be cancelled and a make-up session will be held at a later date. In the event that Lane Community College is delayed, all Art Center classes before 12pm will be cancelled. Call 541-345-1571 after 12pm on the day in question to check for afternoon and evening classes.
