SPRING 2023 

In order to protect the health and safety of our diverse community during Spring Quarter 2023, Kirkland Arts Center requires masking at all times by all, and proof of vaccination for onsite teaching artists, staff, and students over age 12 through June 09, 2023. Our mask requirement is the best way to respect the diversity of our community and our shared goal of safety.


Effective June 10, 2023, masking at Kirkland Arts Center is optional throughout the building. People may choose to wear or not wear masks in classes and work settings at their own discretion. Individuals’ choices to do as they need as it relates to masking will be respected by both KAC and its community members. 

As an employer in the state of Washington, we are mindful COVID-19 remains a recognized respiratory hazard in the workplace and of our obligation to our employees to continue to assess their exposure risk along with the need for further precautions to prevent exposure. Information:  WA State Dept of Labor and Industry: Requirements for Preventing Covid 19.


Kirkland Arts Center requires all onsite staff, instructors, and students over the age of 12 to submit proof of a CDC-approved vaccination protocol. Proof of vaccination can be provided through the following online form or in person on the first day of class:

If you already submitted proof in the past, you do not need to do so again.

In place of vaccination, individuals over age 12 may provide proof of a negative test administered within 24 hours of each class date.
