What types of Art classes do you offer for pre-schoolers?
Our pre-school classes are designed to help young minds grow in their understanding of the world around them through art. Each 6 week session 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.
What is the cost?
Classes cost $18 each.

What kinds of projects will you do?
Each class is packed with books, short relevant videos, brainstorming, and all kinds of art materials. Projects are relevant to whatever the theme is for the session.

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?
If you know in advance that your child will not be able to make it to specific classes, please let us know before the session begins and we will prorate the session for you. If your child misses a class unexpectedly due to illness or a change of events, schedule a make-up class for your child to attend. You can choose a class to attend for a make-up from our class schedule on our website. Please send us an e-mail or give us a phone call to let us know when you would like your child to come in. We will not refund for classes missed unexpectedly.
Session: Mystery Box

Back by popular demand is The Art Spark’s magical Mystery Box. Each week we will begin by singing a song about the Mystery Box before opening it to see what magic is inside. The box will contain different art materials and mysteries for Sparklers to ignite imagination with. Below we have listed out what materials will be inside, but shhhhh! It’s a surprise!
Week 1: Rocks
What will these rocks become? Painted gold nuggets to create maps for and search for? Bedazzled rare gems that they can trade? Sparklers will use a full paint, bead, and gem bar to create rocks as only a Sparkler can imagine them!
Weeks 2: Socks
Sparklers will transform their socks using their imagination. We will create diagrams to think of different ways to utilize our socks. Could they become a stuffed animal? Could they be puppets?
Weeks 3& 4: Sand and Model Magic
Sparklers will create a scene inspired by Sand! Will they create a beach? Sand dunes? An underwater world? It’s up to Sparklers to decide! Sparklers will create a mixed-media project including drawings, sculpture, and sand to create something unique and beautiful.
