Summer Classes & Workshops Coming Soon!
WE ARE CURRENTLY PLANNING our summer classes and workshops. This year has been exceptionally challenging since the cautionary requirements for our studio ventilation and air purification have been difficult to ascertain. As soon as we are confident that we can provide a safe environment in our studios for students and teachers we shall post our full schedule.
IN THE SHORT TERM we are going to post our ONLINE-only schedule since many people have requested that we continue offering online classes. Hopefully our complete online and IN-STUDIO schedule will follow soon after.
Check back on WEDNESDAY, MAY 12 when our ONLINE program will be posted.

Natural Science Illustration
• Saturdays 10 to 11:30 am
• 1.5 Hour class
• All high quality materials included
DRAWING FROM THE NATURAL WORLD has been a staple of art since the first cave paintings - artists looked to the living world around them and wanted to describe it for other people to understand it's beauty and wonder. Natural science illustration can not only be a relaxing method of drawing, but also a practical one. Much like Audubon, it is a career path in the arts for artists who enjoy the natural world. In this class, students will explore natural objects from plants to animals, feathers to shells and more to look at the tiny details and feeling of these objects and convey them in an illustrative manner. In this way, students will learn not only how to capture these objects realistically, but in a way the information can be relayed to an audience in a way a photo often cannot!

What Class Next?
Well then, check out our handy-dandy flow chart that shows the logical progression through classes. Please keep in mind there is no “right” path down the chart. The chart simply illustrates what can be expected in terms of moving into higher level classes over time.
Some students want nothing but Foundation classes, while others want to experience it all! If you have questions please give us a call at 978-266-1600.
We at ActonArt reject the
current wave of hate and violence
being shown to the Black community
and protestors by police.
We call upon our elected officals
and government to take real,
actionable movements towards
dismantling unjust systems.
We have donated to two organizations
that we feel are important to support,
Creatives of Color BOSTON and
The Movement for Black Lives.
Please consider donating.
