Drawing School

 
Student Artwork Banner

ActonArt opened in June of 2003 with 30 students in a five-class summer program. During the past twenty years we have added a number of classes tailored to various student populations. Among them are Painting and Portfolio level classes which are designed to provide high level instruction for students who wish to pursue fine and commercial art careers, and classes designed for the interests and schedules of adults.

OUR MISSION is to provide the highest quality drawing and fine art process and technique instruction to children, teens and adults. We will always endeavor to accomplish this goal by creating a safe, supportive and non-critical environment for students. We believe that everyone can benefit by learning foundational drawing skills whether they intend to use them in their careers or as a means of personal self-expression or enjoyment.

Digital Landscape Drawing

NEW DIGITAL ART CLASS
INTRO TO PROCREATE
FRIDAYS, 4:30-6pm
Ages 12 & up
Find it on the
Advanced and Specialty Classes Page

Learn the basics of digital art with Procreate, taught by our experienced illustrator Jess! With Procreate, students can explore a realm of possibilities and learn how to use different tools to discover their unique art style. Students will need an iPad and an Apple Pencil, as well as the Procreate app on their device to attend this class. Each week, they will be given a project that teaches them how to use a different feature of the app. Although the class is Procreate-focused, many tools the program uses are similar to other apps such as Photoshop or Clip Studio Paint. This class is best suited for students who want to elevate their drawing skills by exploring the digital medium, though students who already have experience with Procreate may also learn something new.
