IT STARTS WITH ONE SPARK…that ignites one idea…that inspires one child…and impacts an entire community.
For Miriam, her love of DC Comics was the inspiration for her first project at SPARK! Starting with the basics, she used pencil and paper to sketch her own creative interpretation of the iconic DC hero Wonder Woman. Then, using a 3D pen she brought her sketch to life.
Inspired to keep her passion project going, she brainstormed and collaborated with SPARK! instructors to use Photoshop to design an elaborate backdrop for her Wonder Woman. Beyond gaining technical skills working with 3D pens and graphic design software, Miriam’s experience working through the creative process taught her valuable problem-solving skills, helped her overcome challenges, and increased her pride and self-esteem.
Miriam is just one example of how creativity helps shape the minds of today’s youth.
Educators and business leaders both agree that creativity is one of the most important skills for future success. But sadly, most public schools don’t have the time or resources available to devote to creative learning.
Through field trips, camps, weekend activities, and the Creator Studio, SPARK! fills this void and gives local youth like Miriam the skills needed to thrive in their academic and career pursuits.
