Learn! Explore! Create! Get Messy! Grow!
Art Sparks classes provide rich art activities for children ages 18 mos. - 13 years. During each class at Art Sparks. children are introduced to artworks by artists who span the world’s cultures and history. Through stories and reproductions, the children look at and discuss works that serve as a springboard for creating their own works of art. Students will pay homage to these artists by borrowing some of their techniques and aesthetics, but will be encouraged to add their own individuality, creativity and flair. We strive to help nurture a passion for creating art — allowing the students to discover their creativity through a natural curiosity and an enjoyable experience.
At Art Sparks children get to explore a variety of media such as acrylics, collage, watercolors, pastels, crayons, printmaking, sculpture, photography, colored pencils, clay and much more.
Children enrolled in Art Sparks classes will acquire the language of art making, developing a true “artist’s” vocabulary as, over time, they become familiar with the materials, tools, techniques, styles, artists, and artistic movements of the world of art - all within the spirit of a no-pressure approach, learning to reflect about the art-making process, embracing “mistakes” as a chance for learning and discovery and most of all - joy!
