The Art Station-Big Shanty near Cobb County Homes

The Art Station-Big Shanty

It’s that time of year. Flowers are blooming and warm weather is here to stay (we hope), but as we all know, the change in season also brings April showers.  While spring typically means rain showers, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a little family fun, just minutes from your Cobb County homes.

The Art Station-Big Shanty offers art classes for adults and children. From photography to pottery, there is something for every artist from beginner to expert. Additionally, The Art Station-Big Shanty offers special classes throughout the year, including the upcoming Mums for Mum. In honor of Mother’s Day, this class allows children ages two to 13 an opportunity to create something special for mom. This class is available on Friday, May 9 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, May 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. For a complete list of classes, visit the website today. Read More→
