September Sign up and Newsletter

Summer is coming to a close and September is around the corner. Our summer immersion program was a booming success this year with classes completely booked. Thank you for your patronage.  Remember to sign up early next year as we had to turn a lot away. Sign ups for summer start March 1st.

Acorn’s fall classes start Thursday, September 1st. The only change will be that we are adding an additional night to portfolio. This is our largest enrolled class and we felt it necessary. The added day will be Wednesday nights 7-9. As before portfolio students have unlimited access to the studio and may come to all portfolio classes as well as the after school classes providing there is room. The cost will be $150 per month which includes: model fees, paint, brushes, paper & drawing supplies, and instruction. It is important that portfolio students complete their portfolios by junior year for submissions to collages their senior year. We are also happy to announce our tally for Acorn students receiving scholarship to college is now over 8 million dollars.  😳😊

Recently our scheduling has been done online. We have been testing it and find that it is most efficient for both the student as well as us. No longer are we playing phone tag and if you need to make changes due to other issues you can do so yourself and see what spaces we have available. The way to do this is to go to our Register for Classes link on the menu bar. NOTE: it is important to always use your same email for your account. To hold the spot, the first months tuition must be paid. This is how the system tracks available spaces. If it is not paid your spot could be taken with no control from us. So it is important to sign up soon.

All After School, Pre Portfolio 1 & 2 prices will remain the same as last year. ( $70 for After School and Pre Portfolio 1….$100 for Pre Portfolio 2)

As always I would like to thank all of you for allowing your child to be a part of my life. Words will never properly express what this means to me and the quality it has made in my life. After 23 years in business I still feel like the I have the best job ever and look forward to seeing their smiling faces everyday and the amazingly amount of hugs and tenderness they give me. Your children are as important to me as mine was. I will continue to give them motherly guidance and love as well as a feeling of accomplishment.

Thank you



Additional Portfolio Time Starting July

Starting in July there will be a new addition to the portfolio times.  We will be offering figurative painting classes from 7-9pm.  Because of this additional night the price of the portfolio class will be increasing starting in July to $150 per month.  This will be a great opportunity for the high school students to create pieces for their portfolio for college.

Snow fight

According to the weather the worst of this storm will be hitting us around 3pm so we have decided to close the studio for a snow day.  Feel free to contact us by email or phone to schedule a make up class so your child does not miss any painting time.

2pm – 4pm

This Sunday, April 13, we will be hosting a Pre-Portfolio 2 and Portfolio 1 show. Each student chose one painting from the past year to exhibit; many of them are self-portraits. Come on by between 2PM and 4PM to enjoy the art and support our young rising paintings stars. There will be refreshments served. 🙂


Your paintings left behind will get tossed

Reminder to parents and all students: If your paintings or your child’s paintings are at the studio and you stop attending classes, they will be thrown away. We can only hold them for one month, due to the small amount of storage space in the studio.

Also JULY 1st is the date for a massive clean out in preparation for our summer program. Every painting that has been left in the cubbies will be thrown away. Make sure that all your paintings are out of the cubbies to avoid losing your work.
