Session: Mystery Box (Monday and Tuesday’s classes will differ in projects but follow the same theme.)
Mondays (1, 8, 15, 22)
Tuesdays (2, 9, 16, 23)
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.
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.
*Please do not prop the door when you come in, or for other parents. It is important to keep the building secure.
What kinds of projects will you be doing?
The projects will be guided by the child’s creativity and individual ideas. As teachers, we have flexible plans that can be altered and changed based on the child’s interest, creativity and problem solving. When doing specific projects, we will review and refine basic art skills with our students. However, we will always focus more on process rather than product in our studio. We offer developing artists the tools and motivation to continue learning.
