This summer we will be exploring more local areas – as inspiration for our art and as material or our art!
Kids come to build confidence and have fun exploring creative arts
Children 1st-6th grade welcome to join us for one or two weeks this July!
At Spark we work to introduce new art mediums and techniques to students, giving them a safe fun learning environment and an experiential art making experience! With a culmination of multiple works of art, the spring session will end with a final art show!
Each day children will have yoga and time to play! We will also be taking a minimum of 4 local field trips for art making – some examples of where we have gone in the past are Dodge Point, Stonewall Stables Horse Farm & Downtown Damariscotta!
Each week is based on a theme, which will weave its way through all the art work – each week will incorporate all types of art making and projects are not repeated as many join us for 2 weeks!
Week 1 – July 11-15 – 2-d into 3-d and back again!
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Week 1 we will explore what it means to make art within and between the dimensions; drawing into sculpture, sculpture into printmaking & textile design, music and sounds into painting! The young artists will create many art works, including a bound book, which becomes a journal of their time at Spark, 2016! On Friday July 15th the children will present their art in an exhibition, displaying all they have done as well as a small performance.
Week 2 – July 18-22 – art that moves…
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Week 2 young artists will explore movement – what it means to make art that moves, or you move while making it! From painting, to sculpture, fabric and textile discovery – we will focus on the process and the literal act of making and moving! As with week 1, we will end in a final art show on Friday the 22nd. Children, along with all their art pieces will also have a bound art book of week 2 at Spark 2016!
