SPARK CLUB ARTIST PROGRAM
Ages 6 (1st grade) -9, 9(4th grade)-12, OR 10 (5th grade) - 15, and Homeschool Options
Let your creativity spark after school is done!
This is a 12-week program for kids who LOVE art and want to think and work like real artists. This program is mainly 2-D focused. Draw, paint, print, collage, weave, and make your ideas happen! The first 4-6 weeks emphasizes learning concepts, material techniques, and practicing skills artists use. The rest of the program focuses on idea generation, and making choices with skills and materials that will be best to use with the artist's unique ideas.
We recognize that not every artist is the same, and will have a different creative process just as any professional or famous artist. We follow the students and their interests, incorporating art history and appreciation as it applies to or challenges the group. We believe the process is just as important as the product. Students are allowed and encouraged to choose how to best express their own ideas to make artwork that is personally meaningful.
Andrea Rollins, co-founder of artSPARK is the instructor for this program, helping each artist advance in his/her own process and at his/her own skill level.
This program runs twice a year, once in the Fall, and once in the Winter/Spring. You must schedule the classes during the season you sign up for—no rollover classes. The art show will be in January or May with an opening artists' reception.
Spark Club is offered for 14 weeks so you can choose the weeks you want to skip and come on the weeks it works for you (however it is best if your child is present for the first 4-6 weeks). If you can make all 14 work, great! If not, 12 is ideal.
Enroll your child in the Spark Club program and get the full experience of being an artist.
Your child will get a sketchbook, save all practice and finished pieces in a “portfolio” folder to reflect on and learn from, and ———NEW for SPRING 2019——— each artist will participate in an ART WALK in Downtown Littleton! A matted piece of artwork will be displayed in one of several Downtown Littleton businesses and will be yours to take home at the end of the show.
This program is becoming more popular and growing. We are so grateful! We love our community!
