SPARK! provides children from second grade to high school with a fully immersive creative environment and hands-on learning that develops their self-definition as creative individuals. Strategically located in the sub-basement of the historic South Side on Lamar building near a large population of low income families, SPARK! provides a variety of creative disciplines to spark the imagination, expand the mind, and engage the body. Through an endless roster of workshops and pop-up activities, students exercise their creativity and learn from creative experts, innovators, and artists. While mostly operating on a group-reservation basis, SPARK! is also open to the public every Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Pop-up activities include: Giant Light Bright, Recycled Art, Legos, Musical Dance Floor, Hula Hoops, Chalk Art, Poetry Magnets, and Percussion. Creative play on the 6,000-foot Climb, Crwl, and Slide sculpture is also included. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Birthday packages available.
