Creative Learning Toolkit

A resource put together by us to help guide you and your children through some high quality creative learning activities to enable you to explore, experiment and enjoy some artistic adventures together at home or in the classroom.

Spark at Home

Our Artists Dave "Stickman" Higgins and Sophie Cullinan have literally leapt into action, to jump out of the libraries, and into your homes and classrooms to create stimulating and challenging learning opportunities.

All 8 sessions are now on You Tube

Creative Family Challenge

12 families took part in a week long, nature themed, creative journey. 19 children successfully achieved their DISCOVER Arts Awards by producing some fantastic artwork and having lots of creative adventures. Here is a gallery of their work in the first week.

About Our Charity

The Spark gives children opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts by experiencing a wide range of high quality work that inspires, empowers and educates.

Through the presentation of an annual festival, a cultural education and community programme and through the production of our own work we offer children spaces to discover their own skills, passions and potential, as audience, participants and creators of their own work.

The Spark works to increase its impact on the creation and presentation of arts for children locally, in the UK, in Europe and Internationally.

The Spark Arts For Children is a registered charity.
