ATLANTA - Sept. 10, 2020 - PRLog -- With the current virtual programming proposed by metro county school systems, there is little to no art-based programming for grades K-5. To supplement the arts in the current school curriculum, Spruill is launching a new weekday afternoon art program, as well as Wonderful Wednesday, an all-day school break camp for the day when there is no planned remote learning activities for DeKalb County schools. Our "hands-on" art programs provide a safe and fun environment for children to exercise their creativity alongside their peers.

"After running a successful summer camp with over 250 campers we are excited to continue offering a safe, creative space to children amidst this virtual world," said Spruill Education Director, Kristin Wilder. Both the weekday program and Wonderful Wednesday will be limited in space to meet social distance best practices and facemasks will be required of all attendees.

In addition to the "hands-on" arts programs, Spruill will also be offering Virtual Hubs for children (grades 2-8) who require WiFi in a safe hygienic place to participate in their school's virtual programming; or for those whose parents/guardians are unable to stay-at-home to provide supervision and ensure their child is engaged in their virtual school lessons.

Spruill understands there is a need for art in providing peace of mind, creative outlets and gathering as a community. However, not every child has access to art or the means to take a class. As a result, we will be awarding scholarships for our weekday afternoon art program, our Wonderful Wednesday camp and our Virtual Hubs. Children can come to Spruill in a socially distanced manner to interact and create art as a means of self-expression during this trying time.

Our weekday afternoon art program will meet once a week (Monday or Thursday) from 3:30-5:30pm for one month starting in September.
Wonderful Wednesday camp: 9:00am-3:00pm. Children will explore drawing, painting, clay and more.
Virtual hubs will meet 4 days a week (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri) from 8:00am-3:00pm.
