As of August 24th, 2016 we will have been open for 18 years and we couldn't have done it without our loyal customers. So...THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!
Greg and Gail Kimsey opened the Art-Full Barn in 1998 inside an actual old red barn that was built in the early 1920's. It began as a place for artists to sell their creations in a funky and fun atmosphere. It has evolved into much more that that. As people came in to look at the awesome art on furniture, canvas, and functional items, they would ask if we could teach them how to paint it. So we began teaching art classes in both decorative and fine art techniques. Our students were having trouble finding the art supplies for the classes. We contacted suppliers and began carrying the supplies for our students. Eventually people heard we had art supplies and asked it we could get specific supplies. Our art supply stock grew by leaps and bounds and eventually we realized we had one of the best art supply stores in all of North East Georgia. Our focus shifted from selling art to selling art supplies and art classes. As other art classes became available in the area in other venues we allotted more of our classroom space to art supply sales and farmed out our classes to other teachers. We eventually outgrew the barn and moved into the much larger space inside Old Clarkesville Mill. The antique mall outgrew its space and the Art-Full Barn had to make room for it so we opened a second location at 107 LaPrade Street on March 1, 2013. The art supplies, comics, toys, models, and frame shop are in the new location. Several other ventures have sprouted from our original concept and the Art-Full Barn has become a hub for people who create. Come see us for all of your art supply needs.
