• WINTER WEATHER UPDATE • Wednesday. Jan 17


ALL CLASSES
WILL (probably) BE HELD.

Local schools are all closed but road conditions are expected to be good by the time classes begin. I will update this information by 2 p.m with a final decision.

Winter Class Registration is now closed.

Our classes remain open for three weeks after each trimester begins, then they are closed to new students. It becomes too hard for new students to join classes after that time. Classes will reopen on March 10th for the spring trimester. Please check back at that time.

This week at ActonArt, Foundation classes are cutting things up with the Bird of Paradise flower!

This beautiful flower (named after the similarly spectacular birds) is native to South Africa and can grow up to ten meters tall! In the intermediate level classes, students are employing a little cut paper method by drawing the leaves and petals on one color of paper and gluing them onto another. This produces bright, colorful flowers on equally color-rich backgrounds.
