"Team Sparkle, this is a fantastic course format - all the info is so easy to access (even for a tech dinosaur like me) and how awesome we have continued access. There are so many great lessons in this process - about intuition, experimenting, risk-taking, letting go...it's wonderful. Follow the process and see where you will end up!"
Nancy Smith, Art teacher, 2021 summer participant.
"Teaching art is something I do for fun; I am not formally trained...participating in this course not only provided a plethora of resources for me to have at the ready, but at this crazy, scary, stressful time we have all faced, it has provided me the much needed distraction of simply enjoying getting lost in creating each week at my kitchen table."
Delayna Goins, Art Teacher
"As a first year art teacher who had no formal training in art (I taught grades 3 & 5 for 7 years) this has been a lifesaver! It has given me confidence in exploring the materials in my classroom and in my own abilities to draw and create art."
Karen Graber Roth, First Year Art Teacher
