We are excited to welcome families back for our 6th year of Spark summer programming! Spark Arts uses creative arts to introduce students to the rich traditions of the world. During our 3 summer weeks together, we will be fully immersed in art activities, nature exploration, and cultural discovery! Since Spark Arts is an arts oriented program, please ensure that your child enjoys art before signing up. At Spark, we will also be learning about plants and trees in our park, including how to identify them and how they have been regarded and used by different cultures.

We will also have several spots available for Junior Counselors: responsible veteran Spark students older than 10 who would like to act as leading community members and helpers for half the price while also participating in all of our activities!

We will be running week 1 & 2 out of our classroom space at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, at 53 Prospect Park West. Week 3’s classes will take place at a beautiful space at 113 Prospect Park West between 6th and 7th street. In addition, we will be spending afternoons exploring Prospect Park. These classes will be taught by Gigi and assistant teachers, Mae and Inbal.

Please visit in the winter to find out more about Summer 2024 offerings!
