New Classes at ActonArt! Some great new offerings…
Thursday 4-5:30 PM
Once students have developed the skills to express themselves through drawing and representational art, this class is designed to open the door to their creativity. Looking for the freedom to let your imagination take you to new heights? This is your class!
Friday 6-7:30 PM
Anyone who likes Cartooning will love this class. We’ll be focusing on creating and developing characters, and learning how to draw them with features, expressions and style that gives them personality and helps bring them to life.
Monday 6-8:30 PM
This class takes Oil Painting to the next level. It’s a follow-up to our introduction class, Oil Painting 1. Learning basic skills is part one of becoming a painter. This class will focus on refining techniques and taking your painting to a higher level of sophistication.
Saturday 12-2:00 PM
Painting is the goal of many artists. This class is intended to introduce students to the three most common forms of painting. Watercolor, Acrylic and Oil Painting each have unique characteristics AND similarities that make working with them fun and challenging. If you’re interested in painting, this class will give you a rich and comprehensive experience at an exceptional value.

Introduction to Painting
Introduction to Painting is a beginner to intermediate level painting class. This is NOT to say it’s appropriate for beginner artists however. Students with an intermediate level drawing ability are ideal candidates for this class because we will not be able to provide drawing instruction. Since many artists prefer to have a simple drawing in place when starting a painting, students must have basic drawing skills in place already.
Because each medium is distinctly different in the way it is used, technique is extremely important, and that’s what we’ll be teaching.
If you’ve always wanted to try painting this is the perfect class to learn the foundation skills of these various mediums — or to take what you already know to a higher level.
