SPARC the New Year!
Powered by Bay Area Creative, SPARC Poetry has been sending local
poets into classrooms since 2008. We work with over 6,000 youth a year
- ages 5 to 18 years old in underserved communities.
Help us meet our goal of raising $5,000 by Jan 17th
each dollar you donate will go towards bringing our
film and poetry program to more youth!
When the Pandemic hit, our classrooms turned into computer
screens - So SPARC poetry responded by creating video editing
classes where students as young as 10 years old can create their
own short poem films in order to get their creations out to the world!
Here are some of our 5th grade students and their experiences with our film and poetry classes
Testimonials from some of our 5th grade film and poetry students:
I enjoy just letting myself go while writing poetry. I also enjoy getting to create my own videos!
I enjoyed writing different types of poems and learning how to edit videos to make them look cool.
I love making videos I have even made a few videos on my own! I like learning new editing skills and trying it on my own.
I like how fun and funny the teacher is, he finds amazing videos to explain what we are doing, he makes poetry really fun!!
I really love learning new strategies for making poetry, learning from others, and cool film tricks. Personally, i love poetry and always have.
