Beck Center Announces 2021 Programming

LAKEWOOD, OH — The Beck Center for the Arts has announced its winter and spring 2021 classes, including a mix of in-person and online offerings.

The current plan is to reopen the Beck Center campus on Jan. 11, 2021. Strict COVID-19 protocols will again be implemented. Instructors will also be ready to switch to online arts programing if the need arises.

“The new year is a great time to create your arts experience at Beck Center. Our Education Team curated an amazing line-up of 150 weekly classes that complement our offering of private lessons in music, dance, theater, and the visual arts. We look forward to welcoming students to our programs – with 105 classes in person or in 45 offerings through our [email protected] online studios,” said Ed Gallagher, director of education at Beck.

A full lineup of arts education offerings has been shared through the Beck’s website. Registration is now open.

The Beck began offering online lessons in March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit Ohio. Educators specifically made use of Google Classroom and Zoom to reach students.

On Sept. 9, the Beck re-opened its campus, with strict mask-wearing, social distancing and sanitization guidelines. As the county’s COVID-19 spread worsened, the Beck again pivoted to online-only education.

“Our campus continues to maintain strict masking, distancing and sanitation protocols, and we remained poised to move all classes onto the online platforms should our area continue to spike with diagnosis or should the state or region shut down for a prolonged period of time,” Gallagher said.
