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.

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.
