Parents looking to supplement their children's education with camps and specialty classes have a new option to consider on Montgomery Avenue in Narberth: SparkPark, a business opening Monday.
A media announcement from SparkPark reads, in part:
Course offerings range from using toys to understand science and understanding math through art to experiencing a pottery wheel, solving "crimes" with Forensic Science, using a lathe for woodworking projects, Aeronautics, in-depth language courses and watercolor and drawing—taught like your child has never experienced before!
"For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for both art and science. When I studied physics and chemistry in college, I realized right away it informed my painting, my understanding of color usage and I started experimenting with making my own paints," says Robyn Stone, founder of Spark Park. "When I had children of my own I started teaching art to kids, with an eye toward science and was inspired by their natural inclination to explore. Kids are totally open to looking at the world through scientific eyes. When you partner science and art your toolkit expands along with your creativity, and the possibilities are infinite."
The business uses the space previously occupied by Chyten Educational Services, across from the Penn Valley Wawa on Montgomery Avenue. Street and lot parking is available.
