The Art Station - Big Shanty was built as a summer home for the Rooker family and eventually became their permanent home. Originally located where Kennesaw Mountain High School now stands, the house was moved and (over a two year period) transformed into the arts center we have today.

With two multi-media classrooms, a pottery studio, meeting space and a gallery, this creative facility is a cozy-yet-productive part of the Cobb County Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department. Programming includes classes and workshops in visual and literary arts during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters; visual, dance and theater camps for children during the Summer quarter; and exhibitions and meeting space for arts-related activities year-round.

Both our front and back galleries feature rotating art exhibits with a variety of media. Local artists, schools, and arts groups are all welcome to display their work.

The Art Station also does a bunch of community outreach, with "Art for All" activities available for libraries, Scout troops, and local schools.
