Teaching at the Farm - 4 Week Sessions


The current circumstances have prevented me from teaching in my studio at McGuffey. As businesses are slowly opening I have considered alternative options and have decided that I will teach, in a limited capacity, at my home. I live on a 230-acre farm 15 minutes from McGuffey on Stoney Point Road. The farm is in a rural setting surrounded by the natural beauty of Albemarle county. The house sits in the middle of three large fields filled with sheep, goats, cows, donkeys, and horses. The upper farm even has several peacocks!


Teaching at the farm will allow me to have control of maintaining a safe class environment as opposed to the uncertainties of teaching in a public space. I will be following recommended safety standards including:

  • Social distancing, all student spaces will be 10 feet apart

  • Hand sanitizer at all entrances

  • Anti-bacterial soap at all sinks

  • Daily disinfection of all spaces

  • Outdoor spaces weather permitting for those who choose outside

  • Smaller classes limited to 6 maximum

Tuesday and Wednesday Evening Class - $150

6:00 - 8:30 pm

Starting June 9th and 10th


Checks payable to Renee Balfour, due upon registration. No make-up classes.
