There areSCADSof great art education opportunities around town –PUN INTENDED

If you haven’t been exposed to the incredible variety of arts exploding all over Marietta and Cobb County, you must not get out much. The cultural medley of fine art galleries and museums, dance conservatories, theatre troupes, symphonies, orchestras, bands and even culinary offerings could keep you busy most days of the week. Have you been inspired by a performance or had a physical reaction to a moving piece of artwork and thought, “That looks like something I’d like to try.”


Marietta/Atlanta is home to an extraordinary variety of educational opportunities for every level of learning from art explorers to committed masters. Art changes lives, and we are passionate about art exploration.

Why take an art class?  Well-known author Stephen Covey says that successful people “sharpen the saw.” Learning something new falls in that category, and learning art has many benefits. Among other things, it will spark your creativity; sharpen problem-solving skills; strengthen concentration and focus; develop your non-verbal communication and more.
