About the Creative Learning Pod

Students receive distanced learning support from an experienced certified teacher and do arts activities with local professional artists during non-learning times.

Remote Learning Support

The pod follows the Shoreline School District's remote learning schedule. Our certified teacher will help your child log in and out at the correct times, work through technology issues, and get their schoolwork done. Learning support is available in both English and Spanish!

Creativity Abounds!

For nearly 3 hours every day, students will do fun and engaging activities like making masks, dancing, building 3D creatures, yoga, creating paper cutout art, and much more! Learn about our professional arts instructors.

All-Day Childcare

You can go to work, run errands, and do the things you need to do all with the peace of mind that your child is safe and actively engaged in a caring educational environment. Stay up to date with the Creative Learning Pod calendar.

COVID-19 Safety

Safety is paramount and the Arts Council is committed to following the latest and most up-to-date recommendations from CDC, Washington DoH, and Seattle and King County Public Health officials. Click here to see a full list of COVID-19 safety precautions that the Arts Council is taking.
