What Teachers Have to Say:
Pre-K through 5th Grade Art Teacher
“Last year I moved to a Pre-K through 5th-grade campus and I found it very overwhelming to plan developmentally appropriate lessons for all of those grades without working all day and night on it.
I was getting burned out quickly, and the Sparklers’ Club was the perfect solution. It really has made my workload so much easier, and the students love the lessons.”
From Volunteer, to Full-time Art Teacher
“I joined the Sparklers’ Club because the artwork is bright and fun! The lessons are creative and I’ve found everything to be VERY age appropriate.
I also appreciate that literature is often mentioned with the project, too. That is such a show stopper, especially for my younger students. It invites them into the lesson and bridges a very connectable gap between art and lit.”
Elementary Art Teacher
"As an art teacher, it’s almost impossible to find the time to do ALL the things! I have 750 students and I felt like I was rushing all the time. The Sparklers’ Club does all the planning for me so I can spend time engaging and making connections with my students.
The membership is very organized and complete with worksheets, standards, vocabulary and more.
Everyone loves the displays in the hallway and I don’t have to work on weekends to get my job done anymore!”
I’m Patty Palmer, founder of Deep Space Sparkle and The Sparklers’ Club.
When I opened the club for the very first time in 2016, my goal was simple:
To support art teachers with vibrant, rigorous art lessons — so they could stop worrying about planning and bring more creative energy to the classroom.
Since then, The Sparklers’ Club has not only become the go-to source for reputable teaching materials but a gathering place for like-minded, kind, supportive art teachers.
We understand that art teachers need more than a library of lesson plans ...
Teaching art comes with incredible rewards and many challenges that few understand. And to thrive in 2023 and beyond… you need a support system that gets it.
So say YES to help where you need it — and let’s share the load together. I can't wait to help you shine in the art room this year...
