Trimester Tuition

ActonArt has grown so much since my son first started attending two years ago, but I am always impressed by the personal touches and the sense that you and all of the teachers really know your students. I love how the teachers open the studio door close to the end of each class and invite the parents in to view the artwork in progress and learn a little bit about the project’s goals and subject matter so they can talk to their kids about it.
