What types of Art classes do you offer for pre-schoolers?
Our pre-school classes are designed to help 3-5 year old minds grow in their understanding of the world around them through art. Each class focuses on developing your pre-schooler’s”
- independence. Each class we teach Junior Sparklers new concepts, artistic skills, and encourage them to navigate our studio independently. We encourage students to execute their own ideas ad well as think through processes.
- creativity. Junior Sparklers learn basic concepts and themes before brainstorming with the teacher and classmates. These brainstorming sessions help your child learn to list ideas, draw solutions, and creatively execute projects.
- motor skills. Junior Sparklers (ages 3-5) refine and enhance their motor skills as they focus on learning to cut, paint, draw, paper mache, mold, & so much more.

Where do I park to drop off my child?
If you are just dropping off, feel free to drop off your child at the white steps. We will come outside 5 minutes before class starts to let all the kids in at the steps. Please do not park in the Coffee Shop/Antique Spots. If you would like to come check out our studio or see a project, please park in the grass lot directly behind our studio. This is a one-way entrance so please use caution when entering/exiting.
What do I do if my I know my child is going to miss a class?
We do not need a heads up! Class passes are designed to be used at your convenience. If your child has a doctor’s appointment, Girl Scout Meeting, or is sick there is no penalty and no charge to your pass. We only deduct class passes for times your child is actively attending.
Does my pass ever expire?
Please use all Class passes classes by May 25, 2018. Class passes will expire May 26, 2018. (Simply because we will be beginning summer camp!)
My child is 3 years old and has never been to a drop-off class, is this going to be a good fit?
If your child is nervous about attending a class all on their own, it might be best to first try our Creative Tot Mornings before purchasing a pre-school class at The Art Spark. This program allows them to get acclimated to our studio in a grown-up + me class before focusing on independence in our pre-school class.
