Spark documents visual and performing contemporary artists, from well-known painters, to ethnic dance companies, to artists working with new technologies. In short video pieces that are under fifteen minutes, Spark takes you backstage at performances and into artists' studios to witness the creative process firsthand. Accompanying each Spark video is a robust educator guide highlighting historical and cultural context for each artist or arts organization, plus lesson plan ideas, vocab lists, and additional resources. Spark makes it easy to bring contemporary artists into your classroom to inspire creative careers and engage your students in the arts.
