My daughter has been taking classes at Acton Art teaching children unusual drawing techniques three years. Her knowledge and skills have increased tremendously over that time. The teachers at Acton Art are outstanding. The program has an excellent balance between skill development and individual creativity.
Beginners Drawing — ages 5 to 6. Basic A Drawing — ages 6. Basic B Drawing — ages 7. Basic Drawing for Home School — ages 6. Students work on their own artwork independently and follow the “process” as presented by the instructor. We try very hard to create projects that are interesting to children. Frequently we present background information on the subject matter to give students more information with the goal of engaging them even more.
Students who are curious or engaged by a subject are much more likely to stay focused and pay close attention to the instructor. Every project is created with a specific learning objective which varies according to the class level and student ages. Some projects may be identical regarding the subject matter but the learning objectives may be different depending upon age level. The learning objectives are age-appropriate and provide enough flexibility that students who fall above or below the average skill-set can still learn and benefit. We use very high quality supplies that are capable of producing excellent quality results. Students are expected to have respect for the materials and supplies since they are shared by many classes.
