A.C.S. Core Program K-12:

New Curricular System Beginning Monday August 7 2023

Students will enjoy leaning to create beautiful artwork! A free trial class is always offered. Prospective students may select which medium to pursue. Mediums are now separated into weekly classes to improve the learning experience.  Students are expected to be ready to accept and follow instruction. Students will work from pre-selected reference and add their own creativity to drawings and paintings as skills are developed and improved. For those who prefer a more self-guided experience it must be approved between parent and instructor. Additional class offerings are Digital/Anime/Characters and Preschool Art Class. Please view the schedule page for class days and times. Please note that as we work primarily with printed reference and from life, we prefer not to use reference from cell phones or other devices ( except the digital class ).  This new curriculum is still in development through February 2024.

Thanks for understanding.
