Art Action with Acton Academy

Acton Academy West Austin

For the next six weeks Austin Creative Art Center will be inspiring the Acton Academy West Eagles to create masterpieces. 

Acton Academy is an elementary and middles school that uses the Socratic method of learning to inspire each child to find a calling that will change the world. 

"We believe 'learning to do' and 'learning to be' are even more important than 'learning to know.'

We believe that clear thinking leads to good decisions, that good decisions lead to the right habits, that the right habits lead to character and that character becomes destiny."

Students will create their very own papier-mâché Citycat! Ms. Zoey Upshaw has been handmaking these folk art cats for more than 10 years. Each kitty built with care and designed with a message to teach us about the world. 

Citycats. Truly like no others.

Citycats have at least nine lives, maybe more. Some are into art and become masterpieces. Others walk on the wild side, covered in tattoos and urban graffiti showing their true colors. Some run away to join the circus. Created of papier-mâché (French for "chewed paper") they thrive on life, art and curiosity. Get closer. Spend time within arms reach.

They will make their choice.
