Summer 2021 Programs- Open for Sign Up


I’m so proud to be a part of this community. Through common sense, following the guidelines, and downright New England ingenuity, we as a community have persevered. And now getting fully back to normal feels to be only months away.


Our summer immersion program was excellent last summer. We followed all the guidelines to a “T” with no cases of COVID. Our students had the best time! AS OF MARCH I WILL BE BACK IN THE CLASSROOM!!! (Jack has been back for a few weeks now)

This year I have confidence that it will feel as close to “normal” that we have seen in a long time, and of course, we will follow whatever the State recommendations will be. (Our hospital grade air filter is now a permanent piece of protection in our studio)

Sign up for both outdoor painting and indoor creating can be done starting today at our website. (Rolling admission into our school year programs are happening now if you want to paint before summer)

See you soon!


Acorn Goes Virtual

Lovely Acorns of all ages, 

We are happy to be doing our small part in these trying times by staying closed and at home. We hope that you are safe and healthy as well. We miss you. 

We have been hard at work trying to find a way to be an active part of your lives and maybe be able to help relieve some mental strain. We have decided to utilize our YouTube channel to bring the lessons we are all missing straight to your home (complete with Debra Stories). 

Our goal is to create and publish 4 lessons per month for as long as social distancing continues. One month of classes will cost $60. If you are interested in being a part of this new Acorn experience, please go to our website and click on Register for Classes. There you will find a tab labeled “Virtual” where you can register for all our new virtual lessons. As lesson/story videos become available we will email private links to those that are participating. When you register please make sure you include the email address you would like to receive your class links.

We understand that money is tighter than usual for many so we are also working to put out a few public stories and possibly a lesson or two.

We love & miss you all, 

Jack, Debra, and the rest of the Acorn staff
