Art Spark is CCLCS' Free After-School Arts Enrichment Program and is open to all students in grades 6, 7 and 8. Classes meet 1 or 2 times per week starting in late Fall and continue until the end of the school year. Students are offered a variety of activities in the Visual Arts and these classes are taught by CCLCS teachers, parents and professional artists.
Some of the activities that have been offered include Asian Brush Painting, Pop Art Sculpture, Acrylic Painting, Book Illustration, Cartooning and Printmaking. It is supported by a grant from the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation. All materials are provided at no additional cost to the students. This special program provides opportunities for students to explore their creative potential in a studio setting with other students who share their passion for making art!
