Here at Shoreline we have a Home Ec room with many kitchens for students to cook in and tables to sew at, we have a Wood Shop with power tools and hands tools and piles of wood, we have an Art Room full of paper, paints, clay, and many other materials to make art with, and a Sustainability Lab where students learn how to survive and thrive through games and hands on learning.
Every student has the opportunity to explore each of these hands-on, project based, practical learning areas. Students go to each exploratory for 9-10 weeks rotating through them all by the end of the year.
The Shoreline Music and Exploratory Programs now has a website at shorelineconnections.weebly.com. You will find weekly activities under Physical Education, Home Economics, Sustainability, Visual Art and Music. Every Friday a new activities will be posted that students and families can do to stay connected to our Shoreline Community.
In Art we focus on creativity and confidence playing purposefully with many different materials and ideas. We draw from our imagination, from the world around us, from printed images and collectively. We paint with acrylics and watercolors to tell stories, to experiment, to learn some of the skills of the masters and to have fun. We create many different things with clay to experience a process that requires patience and brings joy. Each year we build on the skills the students have learnt the previous years.
During our suspension of in-class school Ms. McRae has created a Google Classroom for interested students to join and do art together. Please email Ms. McRae at email@example.com to access.

In this course, students focus on food preparation and sewing. These hands-on learning experiences help students identify and explore their interests while building practical skills that are lifelong and have meaning for everyday use. Students practice creative and critical thinking while learning safe and sanitary food handling procedures, equipment care, comprehension of recipes, textile design, and the importance of efficient work habits. We also explore nutritional needs and the environmental factors that locally and globally influence food choices. As students progress through the middle years, they will be challenged by increased independence and responsibility.
