ART Station, a contemporary arts center in the heart of Historic Stone Mountain Village, is a place where art is an activity rather than a spectator sport. Our facility includes classrooms, a dance studio, two private music rehearsal rooms, and a pottery studio. Educational opportunities range from the amateur to the professional level, and are taught by instructors who are themselves well-respected, professional artists.
All ART Station programs are designed to support and nurture creativity for all ages while conforming to the busy work-week schedule. Accordingly, there are many programs, short and long term from which to choose.
Opportunities range from classes, travel opportunities, arts seminars for corporate and business people, ART Camps, and ART Teams to cultural packages for schools and other clubs and organizations.
ART Station has received the Abby Award for Excellence in Arts Education awarded by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, & was rated “Best Art Instruction for Kids” by Atlanta Magazine, voted “Best Place to Make Your Own Art” by atlanta.citysearch.com, Comcast Community Award, Gannett Community Award, & the Cranium Award for Excellence in Education.
The mission of ART Station Summer Arts Camp is to involve the campers in a variety of artistic activities in the performing, literary, and visual arts, allowing the students to explore their creativity with their peers in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment. This exciting and diverse Arts Camp format offers opportunities for campers to explore and expand their creativity in full day sessions. Activities vary weekly and include painting, drawing, cartooning, puppet making, architecture, collage and pottery. Full-day campers will have an involvement in several disciplines with four classes per day, including creative dramatics, movement, pottery/sculpture and visual arts. Visual arts activities vary from week to week and include painting, drawing, mask making, cartooning, puppet making, architecture, collage and story journal.
“…summer camp at ART Station in Stone Mountain …is like the Julliard of summer camps.”
