The Tree of Life Became a Forest

On November 6, 2015 Spark teamed up with the McClain Varsity Cheerleader Boosters for an evening of Wine & Canvas. A near capacity crowd appeared and enjoyed each other’s company while painting their version of Gustav Klimt’s classic Tree of Life. The tree of lifeproceeds were shared by both Spark and the Boosters and both groups want to express their appreciation for the support our area community continues to display.

Sprark’s next event will be an Open Studio and free Children’s Christmas Decoration Workshop on Saturday, December 5, noon till 4:00 pm at 251 Jefferson.

Young and old are welcome to stop by and take part. Children will be provided with materials and instructions on making unique decorations to both take home and to help decorate Spark’s Christmas Tree.

A nice selection of beverages and sweet treats will also be available.

Spark Open Studio – May 2nd

open studioSpark will be holding another of its popular open studio events. Several of our members will be working on their creations and the general public is invited to stop by, observe, or even pick up a carving knife or paint brush and try their hand at being creative.

For $10 you can buy a stretched canvas and paint a picture using our paints and brushes. A chance to explore your inner creativity and maybe leave with a genuine masterpiece.

We’ll have a pot of coffee ready and because we’re starving artist, maybe a bag of cheap cookies.

The event is free but a few shekles in the donation jar wouldn’t hurt our feelings.

Date is Saturday, May 2, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. Bring the kids!

Spark teams with FCMH Foundation
