  10. My name is Sebastian Alappat and I’m artist on the Upper West Side. I have created a unique art education program called SPARK that is geared to children ages 4 and up. Teaming up with an Art Teacher, we aim to cultivate each child’s spark through an array of lessons given in a working artists studio. We offer both private and group classes as well as field trips to local museums. Our focus on art through the child’s interests have made the program very well received so far. Children are also able to make art outside in a garden studio. For more information, please visit: or email at

    Thanks very much and have a great day.
