The Lithonia Art Center (LAC) has a vision to empower, transform, heal, and restore multi-cultural communities through the arts. OVERVIEW: The Lithonia Art Center is an art coworking space. It is a creative hub for the community of lithonia and South DeKalb County / Eastside of Atlanta. There is so much raw talent in Atlanta, especially the Eastside, but there’s no place that provides a holistic creative outlet for those with interest in the arts. Lithonia Art Center will be this. Lithonia Art Center will include an art gallery with stage, fashion library, conference room,art studio, music studio, comic + retail shop, rooftop cafe, and writing garden. These spacesgive the artist everything they need and will allow the total artist to thrive. All of these spaces will be available for rent. In addition to offering art, music, and fashion classes, LAC will have a marketplace that allows members and local artist to monetize their creations. Members will have access to complimentary classes in business + fnancial management, as well as mentors to guide them on their journey to becoming successful creative entrepreneurs--- no starving artist! Mostly importantly we will offer year-round art therapy for children and adults, dealing with depression, anxiety, and stress. The art therapy classes are also available for those that are simply in need of a creative mental retreat.We target multi-cultural areas that lack access to artistic cultural centers and creative outlets, like museums and art schools. We also focus on areas that have a high density of “creators” or people of African-descent, as many of the world's talents, trends and creativity, derive from these areas. The Lithonia Art Center will help cultivate this raw talentat the local level, then propel it internationally. The building will be open for rental, events, and classes. Followed by an offcial grand opening Feb 8th 2020.
