TULSA, Okla. — Amid the coronavirus pandemic, a small business that's been open since 1975 in the Tulsa metro area is getting creative in order to stay afloat.

The Tulsa Stained Glass company is offering to-go emergency art kits for families to make projects at home.

"It's kept my employees busy," explains owner Richard Bohm.

He and his team came up with the idea of at-home projects after all of the studio's group classes had to be canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

"We have ladies night out, date night, all kinds of variety of things that have just gone zip you know that just went away,” said owner Richard Bohm.

Bohm says he also wanted to create something fun and meaningful for families to keep entertained while social distancing. Each of the projects includes stained glass scraps, a base of choice and glue.

He says many customers have been ordering the emergency kits and is grateful to continue serving the Tulsa metro area.

“We’re just hoping families sit down, have conversations, communication. That’s what our art therapy program is all about," says Bohm.
