The challenge of our time is to find a journey worthy of your heart and soul. Big Acorn After School Arts and Enrichment classes will expand your child's imagination, improve fine motor skills and foster the creative confidence children need to grow and define themselves in todays world! 

Big Acorn Enrichment offers classes and workshops for ages ranging from 7 to adult. Workshops and classes provide an opportunity to expand ones imagination, build creative confidence and have fun while doing it!


Weekly class s programs typically run 3:30-5pm M-Thurs. Some workshops are held on weekends. 

Worried that you won't be able to make it from your child's school to Big Acorn Enrichment classes in time? Don't be! Instruction time begins after 20 minutes of outdoor time for your child to rest their mind, breath, play, socialize and be refreshed so that they may get creative! This is important after a long school day.

Classes are taught by Little Acorn's director and lead teacher, as well as teaching artists in the Asheville area. Jennifer holds a masters degree in Fine art and has over 5 years of extensive experience establishing, teaching and directing unique enrichment classes in school programs up and down the East coast.


We are still determining when our classes will begin running and coming up with lots of unique class offerings . Contact us here for more information!
