Guild CoVid-19 Statement:
The Guild has planned a full slate of programs for the 2020 – 2021 year. However, given the evolving nature and uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, alterations in programming may be unavoidable. Our goal is to provide the programming in as safe a manner as possible and to fully comply with Maryland and Montgomery county mandates. While the Guild will try to provide as much advance notice as possible for any changes, the nature of this crisis means that some changes may be made with short notice. The Guild is evaluating steps such as alternative formats and reduced workshop enrollment to better accommodate social distancing guidelines. Please take into consideration your individual situation when deciding whether to sign up for a workshop. If government mandates prevent an in-person workshop from being held, the workshop fee will be refunded in full. Regarding virtual workshop fees, we will announce them when they become available.  Those signed up for the in-person workshop will have the right of first refusal for the virtual workshop by the same artist.
