6 x 1.5 hours Class size 4 to 15     label $230

Searching for fun indoor activities for kids after school, weekends, or during school break? Get your young artists making, painting, and connecting with their friends in a six-week course from Spark Studio in San Francisco that explores different kinds of self-portraits.

During these six virtual experiences, your little ones will be guided through different fun arts and crafts at home. They will learn art skills and gain a deeper understanding of themselves as they work on literal and metaphorical self-portraits.

Their first DIY project is a paper-mâché three-dimensional sculpture which is sure to spark their imagination. Next is a classic two-dimensional self-portrait that will work on their painting and drawing skills. The final art piece will be a symbolic collage that shows their life journey through cut-outs.

All the online art classes are lead by a talented and friendly teacher who will help them at every step and encourage their inner artists to come forward.

I’m Carrie Leeb, an artist/designer/teacher/entrepreneur/Bay Area native, and I love making things. I feel most alive when I’m creating, and I want to impart this same passion for exploring, experimenting, and making to as many people as I can (like you!). Spark Studio’s a place where this happens.

As a teacher and a mentor, I’ve inspired and encouraged many adults and kids to tap into their creative side and experience the joy that goes along with creating. I believe the essence of making is learning to trust the unique inner voice that’s in each of us, combined with a lot of experimentation and play. I love hearing people say, “I didn’t think I was creative, but I had so much fun making this!” Connecting creatively to ourselves and making new discoveries is energizing - no wonder it’s fun! Spark Studio is a place where people of all ages are free to express themselves creatively. It’s a place to discover the masterpiece that each of us is.
