Sibling Sparklers is held on:
Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 PM
See descriptions for Sibling Sparklers ages 5-9 years:

November 30th
Plaster Mold Paperweights
Using plaster that we will mix up together, Sparklers will fill a mold of their choice.  We will create sketches of how we would like our molds to look using pencil and marker to plan it out. Once our plaster is set we will use acrylic paint, jewels, beads, and glitter to decorate our awesome plaster molds.

December 7th
Northern Lights Watercolor Painting
Sparklers will create a beautiful winter scene of an icy tundra. We will study pictures of the Aurora Borealis which lights up the sky with magical streaks of reds, pinks, greens, and yellows. Sparklers will re-create these colors using a watercolor technique called “wet-on”wet” in the sky of their tundra. We will then add salt to our skies which will create a beautiful crystal like effect.

December 14th
Ornament and Decoration Workshop
This class will be all about making ornaments! Ornaments come in all shapes and colors and can really be anything you want them to be! Using a multitude of different art materials such as: pearler beads, mini trees, metal, plaster, Shriny-Dinks and more Sparkler will create special ornaments to hang up. We can’t wait to get started!

December 21st
Snowy Trees Canvas Painting
Sparklers will have the opportunity to use acrylic paint to create a wintery landscape of beautiful pine trees. We will learn how to work from background to foreground to create magical scene.

NO CLASS ON DECEMBER 28TH

January 4th
Penguin Playground
This class will be all about sculpting! Sparklers will have the opportunity to sculpt a special penguin out of Model Magic. We will then try to create a slide that we can send our penguins down on their tummies!

NO CLASS ON DECEMBER JANUARY 11TH

January 18th
Wax Painting + Resist Watercolor
This class will be all about painting with wax! Sparkler will get to peel and break apart different colors of crayons and melt them using a special hot plate. We will then try painting with the different hot wax colors to create a special design on canvas. To make a flat smooth background to our design, we will use watercolor paint which will “resist” the wax, showcasing it’s raised surface!

January 25th
Soap Bubble Prints
Using a special mixture of Dawn dish soap, paint, and water, Sparkler will blow huge bubbles using a straw. Keeping the bubbles in tact is key! We will then press thick paper onto the bubbles to create a “print”.

February 1st
Foil Relief Art
Sparklers will create a design on a piece of cardboard and cover their drawn design with hot glue. We will then take a piece of tin foil and cover the cardboard. Using our hands and fingers to gently rub the foil down, we will begin to see the outline of the raised hot glue. We will use Sharpie Marker to fill in the flat spaces between the raised ones to create a stained glass effect.

February 15th
Giant Dessert Pillows
This class will be all about the art of stuffed sculptures! Sparklers will pick a dessert of choice and will then create that dessert using felt and stuffing to make a giant pillow. We will search the studio for found art materials to help complete the masterpieces!

*Our classes will go until end of May 2018. We will continue to add more class descriptions throughout the year.
 

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?
