ASHTABULA — Months of artistic inactivity due to the coronavirus pandemic left the music, art and dance skills of area residents undeveloped.

The Ashtabula Arts Center is doing something about that with an opening that involves a variety of options in a social distanced format.

One-on-one music, small dance and a variety of online classes are available, said Ashtabula Arts Center Executive Director Meghann Humphrey.

“It is great to be open,” she said. Humphrey said they are working hard to make the Arts Center experience as safe as possible with the use of masks and hand sanitizer a priority.

Some scholarships are available for online classes and can be applied for at the Arts Center’s website while signing up for a class. KeyBank provided a $5,000 scholarship for the classes that will be available until the money runs out, Humphrey said.
