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. 

JOIN US AND MAKE IDEAS HAPPEN!


WE ARE MOVING!!

Starting May 1st we will be located in a bigger, better space at 5650 S. Curtice St. just a few blocks from our old space in downtown Littleton.  It is a beautiful Victorian house and Historic Landmark offering several features that will greatly improve artSPARK and our community.  We will have OUTDOOR SPACE including a yard/garden for outside art opportunities including plein air drawing/painting, a picnic lunch, or a breath of fresh air to move and get the wiggles out.  We are also very excited to offer PARKING to our customers!  In the front there is street parking, but in the back you can drive straight to the house where there are spots just for artSPARK. YAY!

Our biggest change, and a really exciting feature is that we will have ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE in the three upstairs rooms to share their artistic passion and process with us!  Get a glimpse of their work below and click on the photo to learn more about each artist.  Stop by on First Fridays from May - August from 5-9pm for Littleton's Art Walk to meet the artists and see their work in person.  Each artist will rotate through the artSPARK schedule to offer classes/workshops that highlight the media and process they know best. Go to our KIDS ART or ADULT + TEEN ART pages to see their offerings.  Join our newsletter to stay up to date!

TESTIMONIALS

Their philosophy on art education is so important! We need more kids to learn to think like artists, not just copy what another artist has done.
— Kristen B.
We loved the previous incarnation of Art Spark (Studio Arts) and look forward to this next offering.
— Nanette J.
I LOVE IT !!!! The owners Andrea and Michele have years experience as artists and teachers, now bringing their combined experience to the public. Can’t wait to come back for more.
— Doug M.
You have successfully sparked the artist in both of my boys! They had a blast at Spark Time camp and came home wanting to do MORE art!
— Sandy E.
My kids love artSpark. Art class day is their favorite day of the week!
— Sarah M.
I just picked my girls (8 and 6 yrs old) from their first camp at artSPARK. They loved it and were asking to go again before we were even in the car. They did several projects and learned new techniques - their favorite new thing was using a glue gun. The co-owner Michele, who is a former school art teacher taught the entire class (i.e. they got instruction from a very experienced and knowledgeable leader). My 8 yr old was also excited to have made a new friend with one of the other campers. We’ve already purchased and signed up for several future camps.
— Sheryl V.
My kids LOVED “Artsparks” art camp today, and opened up their own art studio in our living room, complete with a tour of all the stations and complimentary art lesson. Thank you artSPARK for providing this unique experience!
