Classes for 5-9 yr. olds

We offer drop-off art classes for children ages 3 & up! While in our studio your child will be sure to ignite imagination as they ask questions, solve problems, and explore new art materials.

Sibling Sparklers is held on:
Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 PM
See descriptions for Sibling Sparklers ages 5-9 years:
September 7
Dragon Egg Sculptures
Sparklers are on the hunt for the mysterious and beautiful…dragon egg! We will look high and low in our art studio for jewels, gems, and beads to decorate a dragon egg that we will sculpt and create ourselves. Using crushed foil as our base and air dry clay to mold around our foil, we will create a unique egg shape. Sparklers will press their decorative items they collected into the clay and will then paint them using a wide variety of magical colors!
September 14
Mini Aquarium Architects
Each Sparkler will receive a small, clear display case to decorate and fill to be their very own mini aquarium. Will we need a beautifully designed backdrop? Gravel and rocks to decorate the bottom? Water plants? Mini castles? Treasure chests? We will use Model Magic to sculpt colorful and bright fish to swim inside our aquariums. We can’t wait to get designing…
September 21
Pen and Watercolor Desert Paintings
Using a pen to outline and add small detail can make a watercolor painting really pop! Sparklers will draw out a desert landscape using a Sharpie pen as their main art material. Will we need to draw cacti? Sand? Rock formations? Lizards? Rattlesnakes? We will then use various watercolors to fill in our landscapes.
September 28
Monet Inspired Plate Ponds

Paper plates can be a great base to work from when creating unique art! Sparkler will use a paper plate as the base for a Monet inspired pond. We will use blue, green, purple, and turquoise paint to create the look of water on our pond.  Sparklers can then add lily pads and flowers using tissue paper and glue. What else could we add to our pond-scape? Fish? Ducks? Frogs? Turtles? Let’s dive right in!
October 5
Yarn Weavers
Sparklers will use different types and colors of yarn to create a unique weaving of their own!  Using cardboard sheets with small cuts made in the top and bottom, Sparkler will create a mini loom. Each weaving will be different in its own special way. Using a variety of textured strings and yarns will create unique patterns and designs!
October 12
Rainbow Shell Snails+ Pumpkin Garden
Fantastic colors will be mixed and molded during this art class! Sparklers will get to pinch, roll, and sculpt a special snail with a colorful shell. Using Model Magic, we can mix up pretty much any color we’d like! After our snail comes to life, we will create a mini pumpkin garden for the snail to slide around in.
October 19
Haunted House Silhouette Paintings
A wonderful MONSTER-piece is sure to be made… Sparklers will design a haunted house filled with ghouls, ghosts, monsters, tricks and treats, vampires, zombies and more! The house will be set against a spooky sky using watercolors, complete with oil pastel bats and maybe a witch flying across the moon . Muahahahahahahahaha!
October 26
Maskmaking + Spider Rings
Halloween costume fun is upon us! Sparklers will design a special mask to disguise them! Will we need sequins? Fur? Glitter? Paint? Felt? Fabric? After finishing our SPOOK-tacular masks, we will create wickedly wonderful spider rings using wire and Model Magic!
November 2
Leaf Suncatchers
The leaves are falling all around us, in beautiful shades of red, orange, and golden yellow! Sparklers will take inspiration from fall leaves to draw and design an intricately patterned leaf using Sharpie markers on wax paper. These leaves will function as beautiful suncatchers that will glow in the autumn sun!
November 9
Clay Forest Animals
There are many types of animals that you can find living deep in the woods and forests of the world.  Foxes, bears, wolves, owls, and raccoons are just some of the names that come to mind. Sparklers will have the opportunity to sculpt different forest animals. We will learn about making texture on clay using various art supplies to create realistic looking fur. Sparklers will learn the art of slipping and scoring to connect clay pieces together to form a special animal all their own.
November 16
Salt Watercolor Koi Fish
Special koi fish will be designed by the Sparklers on black paper. We will try to think about all the different parts we will need to complete our fish: fins, tails, body, etc. Using glue and salt to completely cover our koi fish, we will then apply watercolor droplets on  top of the salt. Sparklers will watch the bright colors of the watercolor spread across their koi fish designs. We can’t wait to see how they turn out!
November 23
CLOSED FOR THANKSGIVING. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

What is the cost?
Classes cost $20 each. Minimum number of classes that can be purchased is 5. Class passes can be used at your convenience. You do not need to let us know whether or not  you are coming. You may not attend class without a class pass.

Can my child attend for just one class without a pass?
Unfortunately, no. It is easier for us to keep track of how many class pass holders we have if each child purchases a minimum of 5 classes.

I have a class pass, can I use the pass for my child and his/her friend?
Sure, when you sign them in we will just deduct 2 classes instead of one. We will need that child’s contact information when they sign in.

How do I enroll & pay?
Enrolling is easy through our website. You can enroll more than one child at once on the same form if you’d like. Scroll down to the form located on this page. Fill out the form and hit continue. The continue option will take you to payment options. You can pay easily through Paypal, or by mailing us a check. Voila! You’re all signed up! With our NEW class pass system your child can attend class at your convenience. We no longer offer sessions, but different projects each week for your child to imagine, plan, and create!

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 that day. For example if are doing a session on Hawaii, we may make ukuleles one class & sculpt volcanoes the next!  The best way to get an idea of projects is to check out our Instagram. It is packed with pictures of classes, camps, birthdays, & events.

Where is your studio located?

Our studio is located at 9430 Main Avenue. Next to Corner Coffee Cafe off of Loveland-Madeira Road.

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.

Does my pass expire? 
Your pass expires on May 25, 2018. From then we will go into Summer Camps.
