Spark Connection

Virtual Classes

Join us for online classes led by professional teaching artists, empowering students to create!

 

Weekly classes include both pre-recorded video lessons as well as live, zoom-style activities with a teaching artist.

Students complete fun activities during the class but also projects to work on outside of class time that encourage creativity AWAY from computer screens.

$10 enrollment fee covers cost for all 5-weeks of class (and all 10 weeks for Video Pals)!

A limited number of iPads are available to sign out and use for classes for students without access to an appropriate device, but they will need access to an internet connection. Students in filmmaking class will also be able to sign out cameras for creating their projects.

Video Pals, $10 (free for Seniors)

Saturdays, 1pm-2:30pm

July 25th-September 26th

Students 8-18, seniors 55+

In this program, senior citizens connect with students in a modern-day spin on pen pals. Moderated and overseen by a teaching artist, these new partners will connect via video chat and online activities. Together they will create monologues for their partner to perform!

 

We believe this program will be a healthy way for our community to connect in unexpected ways, and provide a unique mentoring opportunity.
