Upcoming Events

Art Exhibit: People of the World

A dedicated group of Academe students, along with their art teacher, Ms. Fiona Handschin, have planned and organized a public art show. They solicited art from our student body. Our curator, Shawn Vinson from the “Different Trains” Gallery met with the students several times during the past school year for advice and has continued working with the students this year. The students were the driving force putting this show together, and we are so excited for the Opening Night on Friday, August 30th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. The show will be at the Cornerstone Bank of Decatur (125 Clairemont Ave, Decatur, GA 30030). Everyone is cordially invited to the show and to meet our student artists.
