Class Theme Description: 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.
How do I pay?
Please make a check out to: Sacred Heart School 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.
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.
