Spring classes and workshops at Chastain Arts Center, 135 W. Wieuca Rd., NW, begin the week of March 24, and continue for ten weeks; there are classes for children as young as 2 years old, as well as for adults. Classes range from the traditional fine arts, like drawing, painting, and printmaking, to crafts such as pottery and jewelry. More unusual offerings include Tai Chi, Silk Painting, and Fabric Arts classes. Several workshops are also scheduled for the spring session, including two week-long pottery workshops with noted artist Rick Berman, and a three-day plein air painting workshop with Phil Sandusky, visiting artist from New Orleans. For more information about any of the classes, call the Center at (404) 252-2927, visit our website at, or drop by the center and pick up a class catalogue. Registration for spring classes is ongoing.

In the Gallery at Chastain Arts Center, Sights and Insights is on view through April 11. Sights and Insights, the 2008 Southeastern Regional Biennial Exhibition of 2-D artwork, was juried by Joseph Peragine, and is presented by The Dunwoody Fine Arts Association in collaboration with Chastain Arts Center.

The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, a division of the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs, has operated Chastain Arts Center since 1968, making it one of the oldest community arts centers in the metro Atlanta area.
