Patty Palmer of Deep Space Sparkle introduces Art History Curriculum for art teachers

Behind the Scenes: Art Through the Ages Curriculum

At Team Sparkle, we’re always looking for ways to make your life as an art teacher easier so you can focus your energy and time on your students – instead of being stuck behind a computer planning.

With that spirit in mind, we are thrilled to introduce you to the new Art Through the Ages (ATTA) Curriculum that is available to members of the Sparklers Club!

We’ve been working for months behind the scenes; bouncing ideas off each other, creating sample lessons and testing them in real classrooms, filming and editing videos for what felt like forever – just for you!

The ATTA Curriculum is designed to expose students to the breadth of art history, condensed into 10 bundles ranging from Prehistoric to Contemporary Art that can easily be covered in the span of a school year. All of the lessons from kindergarten through seventh grade have been aligned to the National Core Arts Standards and have Common Core connections already built in.

Can you imagine the time you could devote to connecting with an inspiring your students if you don’t have to plan and gather resources for an entire year? Our goal is to give you that freedom, while still delivering high quality, engaging instruction.

Though the curriculum is rooted in art history, we have worked hard to ensure that the lessons are balanced to still give your students a deep understanding of the elements and principles of art and an opportunity to work with a variety of art mediums.

But the ATTA Curriculum isn’t just lesson plans. We’re curated resources like visual slide decks, engaging worksheets, helpful planning documents and EVERY single lesson features an accompanying instructional video that can be played in your classroom so that you can spend your time in more impactful ways.

You can sign up for the Sparklers Club and gain access to the ATTA Curriculum. We truly can’t wait for you to become a member and get your hands on this incredible curriculum! Click below to join the Waitlist and learn more about the Sparklers Club:

    I’m already a gold member. Could you inform me where to go to access this resource.
    Thank you

    • Patty

      YES!!! Head over the The Sparklers website, login and click on Curriculums in the menu bar. From there, you can choose the EPIC curriculum or the Art Through the Ages Curriculum. Here’s the link to the website: https://www.deepspacesparkle.com/tmc/

        I would like info on curriculum a for grades K through high school. I’ll be teaching a Christian homeschool co-op.
        Look forward to hearing from you.

        • Patty

          Hi Laura, If you email support@deepspacesparke.com, we can send you some info ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Erin Miller

    Would you consider making this curriculum available for a single purchase for those of us not in the club? Or maybe pitch this as your next book!

    • Patty

      Hi Erin! Great suggestion! We found offering it inside our membership is the most affordable way for art teachers to access high quality art lessons and curriculum. Truthfully, I sold a curriculum โ…“ the size of this one and sold it for $400. And the bundles I sell individually are more than a monthly fee…so it seems like a no-brainer to join monthly to me! BUT, I do understand it’s not for everyone.

  • Liezel

    I am a homeschooling mom and would love to access the epic curriculum and art through the ages. I can not afford a club membership. Do you have ways for homeschoolers to access parts?

    Your projects look amazing. I too, like another commented am unable to afford a monthly club fee. Our art program was cut to to funds and I personally can’t take it on. Do you have any options for those who would love your lessons but can’t be a club member?

      We do! This blog offers hundreds of free lessons plus every Thursday (Starting in September) I do free art tutorials on my Facebook page PLUS I often show free lessons from inside the membership on Instagram.

  • Sue Ford

    Help! I am a second year Art teacher! I love alot of your ideas and concepts.

  • Renea Micallef

    Lessons look good and I am really hoping this will help me cut down on some of the planning. I was wondering if there are any powerpoints or google slides to go along with lessons? Also, is there any STEAM or IPAD lessons for 5 and 6th grades?

    • Patty

      Hi Renea!
      We have just started adding slide decks to our bundles. The entire ATTA curriculum (Art Through the Ages) has 1-3 slide decks per bundle so you can use them to introduce the art period.
      Our October Bundle is Technology in the Art Room…can’t wait to share some of the resources we found and the lessons we created ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jennifer Barrow

    Its that time again to sign up for deep space sparkle. If I purchase the entire year up front will I be able to access all the lesson plans at once or do you still only get two or three lessons a month?

    • Patty

      Hi Jennifer!
      It’s absolutely the time to join!
      As a member (monthly or yearly) member, you will receive one brand new bundle each month. A typical “bundle” includes 9-12 lessons plans, resources to support the lessons, activities, etc.
      Then, you receive 2 Unlocks so that you can choose two more bundles from our bundle library each and every month. There are over 90 bundles so there is alot to choose from.
      This amounts to about 30+ lessons plans each month, plus additional trainings, resources, community art meet-ups, etc.
      Can’t wait to see you in the club!
      Here’s the registration page > https://pages.deepspacesparkle.com/tsc-2020/

    I am an art teacher for all levels. I’d like to join your club to gain more resources if possible.

  • Karen Spencer

    Hello, I have taken over as an art teacher at a primary school and I have found a number of your pdf art documents on file. The school does not have membershoip and it would seem as if the previous teacher did. Please can you inform me as to the price of your membership and whether there would be new content.
    Many thanks,

    • Bethany

      Hi Karen! The Sparklers Member’s Club is a membership program that supports teachers who teach art to kids. We offer three bundles a month. (Each bundle contains anywhere from 9-15 lessons in each bundle.) One bundle Team Sparkle will “drop” into your account. It is the NEW monthly bundle that Team Sparkle will create for that month. Then, you get to choose 2 bundles of your choice from our bundle archive. We have over 70 bundles to choose from. You can choose from artist and themed bundles or you can choose bundles from either the EPIC or ATTA curriculums. Each month going forward, you can add three more bundles to your account in this way. There are monthly and yearly memberships! To get the latest information on our membership please join the waitlist by clicking here: https://deepspacesparkle.lpages.co/the-sparklers-club-waitlist/.
