Offering take-home art kits with paint and canvasses is one way Paint & Bubbles Studio in Magnolia has adapted while its studio is temporarily closed in accordance with local and state coronavirus guidelines, owner Rachel Alarid said.

“That has been a pretty good hit for us,” she said. “We have great customers and they have been supporting us.”

Alarid said the studio will continue to put out new designs for customers to work on at home for as long as needed.

Additionally, Alarid said the studio is rolling out online art classes, which follow its online classes available to students through its partnership with Magnolia ISD.

"We are still hoping we will have our summer camps and our classes in our studio again," she said. "We are waiting to hear from the governor about when we can reopen business, but we are still hopeful that we will be able to continue to offer [our services]."
