The French Art Colony is a regional multi-arts center dedicated to supporting arts education and cultural enrichment in our communities. For more than 50 years, the French Art Colony has woven creative threads throughout the diverse area connecting people in a colorful celebration of life. Housed in an 1855 Greek Revival home, “Riverby,” the Art Colony offers extensive youth arts programming designed to spark the imaginations of pre-K youth through teenagers and beyond. Adult art classes, exhibits and annual events showcase the creative spirit of our Appalachian region. The FAC’s Riverby Theatre Guild, compromised of community and children’s theatre, a puppetry playhouse and educational outreach, offers the magic of live performances throughout the year, utilizing a number of area venues.
