Think and work like artists and make your OWN ideas happen! artSPARK is a creative studio and unique art making space for ages 1-adult to explore ideas and processes. We offer classes, camps, parties, and workshops in the heart of Historic Downtown Littleton, CO. We have designed a community-based studio atmosphere where learners of all ages and abilities can engage with materials and practice authentic creativity in a variety of media. Andrea Rollins and Michele Hardesty co-founded this studio in the summer of 2016. They are experienced art teachers with a combined 42 years of art experience. artSPARK is a Montessori and TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) inspired studio. It also has elements of a Reggio environment with its process-based approach and focus on each student as a unique individual.
We emphasize CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION, INSPIRATION, IDEAS, PROCESS, PLAY, CHOICES, INNOVATION AND SELF-EXPRESSION. We encourage practicing 21st century skills like CRITICAL THINKING, COMMUNICATION, COLLABORATION, RISK TAKING AND PROBLEM SOLVING--all vital to boosting self-esteem and future success in life.
