Wesleyan School | Fine Arts Department
Peachtree Corners, Georgia
Home to Wesleyan School’s Fine Arts Department, this building serves as a place to both create and display art. The Lower Gallery of the Arts Building features 28-foot tall pyramids, creative ceiling canopies, and art display panels painted in whimsical colors. A focal point upon entry, the gold concrete cross and imported mosaic tile backsplash give the space added artistic flair. The first floor of the building houses the two-story band and chorus room. Bringing all of the musical components together, the lower level also features a state-of-the-art MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) lab capable of importing sound from all music classrooms and practice rooms for editing and recording. The upper levels of the building include spacious painting, drawing, and sculpting studios. These rooms are equipped with fume exhaust arms, paint booths, and electric kilns. To stay on the leading edge of digital media, the Arts Building also features an art technology classroom and resource library. As unique as the arts building itself, the blackbox theater provides moveable seating and theater-in-the-round opportunities with a maximum audience of 125. The “green room” area adjacent to the theater houses the boys and girls’ dressing rooms as well as a props storage room.
