What is the Theme?
Medieval Magical Castles
For this session Sparklers will imagine they are Lords, Knights, Queens, and Kings ruling over a kingdom. Each week we will learn about medieval times and use different techniques in art to create our projects.
Week 1 & 2
Slab-Rolled Castle Towers
Sparklers will begin this class by learning the different components of a medieval castle. What helped fortify castles to make them safe? Were they made of stone, wood, or brick? Were animals used around castles to fend off attacks? What other key parts of a castle can they create? A moat? Battlements? Drawbridge? They will then learn slab building techniques and work to sculpt and paint their towers.
Week 3 & 4
People and Creature Puppets
Who lives in magical castle tower? Knights? Kings and Queens? Dragons? Unicorns? Dogs and Cats? (Dogs and cats were kept in castles to reduce the number of rodents!) Sparklers will draw and design 1 or 2 puppets to create throughout the next two weeks of class. We will use a variety of yarn, felt, and fabrics to create our puppets and full medieval outfits.
Week 5 & 6
Crowns and Shields
Sparklers will design their very own crowns and shields using foil, paint, jewels, and a variety of different techniques. We will learn how to distress our shields with paint buffing techniques. They will also draw and design a crest to go on their shield.
How do I sign-up? Enrolling your child is easy on our website. Please enroll below. Our classes usually fill, so be sure to sign-up early to secure your spot!
How do I pay? Please make a check out to: All Saints and give it to us, (The Art Spark teachers) the first day of each session. The total will vary based on the length of the session. The cost is $14 per class. Each session will be approximately 6 weeks long.
Where do I pick-up? Please allow us the full amount of time to wrap up projects. Once class is over at 4:15, we will pack up and dismiss students to parents at the side entrance near the art room. (Across from gym and garden area.)
What kinds of projects will you be doing? Classes will be split up into sessions based on different themes. At the beginning of each class we will ask questions, diagram ideas, and brainstorm solutions to create unique projects. Children will use a plethora of art materials including but not limited to: oil pastels, watercolor, colored pencils, crayons, markers, felt, paper mache, clay, model magic, and more!
What should I do if 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 at our studio. You can choose a class to attend for a make-up from our class schedule . 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.
