The AHG is a school dedicated to the teaching and preservation of the traditional arts in the Newnan-Coweta area.
How THe Guild Works:
At the moment, our school is decentralized. All of our Artist-Teachers are teaching out of their personal studio spaces. Students looking for education and experience in the Traditional Arts come to our site to be connected with area Artist-Teachers. Our organization increases awareness for Traditional arts and artisans by producing high quality collective advertising and organizing special events.
The "Under One Roof" Initiative:
Our goal is to become a thriving school dedicated to teaching art. We want to become centralized and unite all the artists and disciplines in one building.
The Under One Roof initiative and our purpose is to collectively teach, promote, represent, and elevate traditional arts here and throughout Georgia. We believe having a building where classes can have access to quality supplies, where studio space can accommodate many students, and where collaboration across traditions is both encouraged and inspired...this is how we can train new generations of artisans to not only preserve the "old ways," but also innovate and create the artwork of this new day.
