Hands down one of the best community art centers I've ever been involved with. What a gem in rural north-east Georgia!!! Monroe has a heart for creative types and businesses - the MWCA is a cultural hub for the creative community and beyond!

I was looking for a place to reconnect with Monroe after being away for several years. Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts was that place for me. I started attending Walton Writer's and branched out into volunteering at the center. The center offers classes for both adults and children at the beginner and advance levels or anywhere in between. I am definitely a beginner and have been welcomed with open arms. The soiree's are a great community builder that provide an opportunity to try one's hand at multiple art forms. I purchased several of the pottery kits during this pandemic which provided much needed entertainment. MWCA serves the community gladly and makes everyone welcome.

Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is one of the elements that make Monroe, GA and Walton County great places to live and visit. Many visitors are amazed at the vibrant art community MWCA has created in a town our size. MWCA provides a place to see, learn, sell, and purchase unique art and writing and engages in outreach programs serving the surrounding community. Art activity boxes, created by volunteers and funded by the community, are distributed to fire stations, hospitals, and foster care agencies to occupy and calm children and teens in times of stress, and many classes focus on students with special needs. I am delighted to be part of an organization with such a cooperative spirit.

I love this place! As a member, I have found an outlet for my creativity in photography and acrylic paintings, I have entered numerous art shows, and I’ve sold some of my work. It’s a great feeling walking in and being recognized by name by the director, volunteers, and fellow artists! I honestly consider the Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts to be like a second home, one I don’t get to visit too often, but every time I do I’m welcomed like family!
