Class Procedures and Protocols

This Page Last Updated: 1/4/22

Due to the current public health conditions and on the advice of the City of Hamilton Health Commissioner, the Fitton Center for Creative Arts will be following the protocols outlined below:


  • Unless otherwise specified by the class instructor (see second bullet) masks are not required in adult classes* for anyone 12+, though we strongly encourage unvaccinated patrons to wear a mask. Masks are provided at the door.

*Anyone in a class with children 11 and under must wear a mask regardless of age/vaccination status.

  • All instructors reserve the right to require masks for students regardless of age/vaccination status if desired.

  • In youth classes, masks are mandatory for all students, faculty, staff, etc. regardless of age/vaccination status.


Social Distancing 

  • Social distancing will not be strictly enforced during classes and workshops but we do ask all students to be mindful of one another's personal space.

  • Parents may resume waiting in the lobby during classes (if desired.)

We have had outstanding support and advice from the City Health Department throughout the pandemic, which has allowed us to provide summer camps, classes, exhibitions & performances, both inside and outside through the past 2 years. We continue to take their direction in all matters of public health, both in service of our community and to ensure that the Fitton Center is able to fully open for performances and events, later this year.


We please ask for your support and assistance in this matter, and we will continue to update the public and our partners regularly as we look to move forward in a positive way.
