Providing a place to see original art and the opportunity to create it is what the Fayette Art Center is all about. Previously housed in Fayetteville, the Art Center has moved to 2011 Hwy 54 West in Peachtree City. The new location is near the Publix shopping center and across the road from Ace Hardware in a cute yellow cottage. The location provides ample space for classroom studios as well as an art gallery and gift shop.

The Fayette Art Center's Director, Kathaleen Brewer, describes the Center as "a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing people together through the arts." The Center provides a wide variety of art classes for both children and adults.

Daytime and evening classes are available for adults and teens. After-school classes are provided for children and teens, as well as daytime classes for home schoolers. Some classes are available with skilled teaching for special-needs children.

Saturday workshops are scheduled around special interests. This Saturday, a workshop on making "Fiber Jewelry" will be held from 10 to 3. Teacher Claudia Wood will inspire students to make unique, personal earrings and brooches using recycled threads and fibers, along with beads and wire. No previous experience is necessary, but students must call the Center to make a reservation by noon March 30.

Most of the classes at the Fayette Art Center cost approximately $10 an hour. Part of each class fee goes to the teacher and part goes to support the non-profit Art Center. For more information or to register for classes, call 770-631-2780.
