Spark After School classes just might be the best part of the day! Our small classes accommodate the interest of each individual artist while teaching valuable skills. Students have fun exploring, problem solving and creating on canvas, in clay and through drawing. We have a wide variety of classes to inspire all kids.

MONDAYS  (3 weeks: November 27, December 4 and December 11)

3:30 – 4:30  Paper Mache Reindeer

(Don’t worry if you can’t get to class right at 3:30! We understand that students come from
different schools around the city which is why we start every class with a warm up project
and dive into the main lesson once everyone has arrived.)

This 3 week class will focus on just one extended project: paper mache reindeer! Of course, we embrace kids’ creative expression and wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it turn into something different altogether!

TUESDAYS (8 weeks: November 28 – January 30.) ** No class 12/19 or 12/26**

3:30 – 4:30  Mini Masters/Famous Artists (Grades 2-5)

(Don’t worry if you can’t get to class right at 3:30! We understand that students come from
different schools around the city which is why we start every class with a warm up project
and dive into the main lesson once everyone has arrived.)

Explore the methods and madness of great artists! Each 8 week session focuses on different artists, so even if you’ve taken the class before, you’re in for new experiences. Besides well known artists (perhaps Picasso, VanGogh  orMonet) we’ll learn about artists kids might not have heard of (for example Paul Klee, Jim Dine or Louise Nevelson).  Their artwork and styles will help inspire us as we reinterpret them in a variety of mediums such as clay, paint, oil pastel and more.

WEDNESDAYS (8 weeks: November 29 – January 31) ** No class 12/20 or 12/7**

3:30 – 4:30  Clay Creations & 3D Sculpture (Grades K-5)

(Don’t worry if you can’t get to class right at 3:30! We understand that students come from

Create 3-Dimensional designs out of clay, paper mache and reclaimed materials in this fun and energetic class. Monsters, puppets, castles and more are just some of the possibilities awaiting you!
