Dupont is Waiting for Approval to Open Again

We have had to close again for the past few weeks due to the recent lockdown. During the last opening we had up to 15 people enjoying art again at DuPont with distance. We hope to see you again soon. While you wait, check out our you tube page for recent videos from our talented instructors.
At present we are waiting to see when Ventnor Hall will be open for us and will let you know as soon as that happens.
