Art center moves to Roswell farmhouse By Rachel Kellogg firstname.lastname@example.orgFormerly known as Holy Cow Farm, Farmhouse in the City has moved to a new location in Historic Roswell.
After four years of being in business, Mrs. Donovan has begun offering walk-in hours at her new building. Walk-in hours require no reservations and will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children’s walk-in activities include pottery painting, toys, dress-up, bracelet making and playtime with bunnies and baby chicks. Walk-in canvas painting is also available. The new hours debuted last week, and Mrs. Donovan said they were a big hit with her customers. “I had a lot of people come out all three days,” she said. “I’ve developed a great customer base over the years, and they had been asking for walk-in hours for a while.” Now that Mrs. Donovan is in a larger location, she said she plans to hire additional staff members to accommodate her expanded hours. Ms. Donovan will continue to hold her Cork and Canvas events every Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. Attendees can bring food and drinks and will paint a 16 x 20 size canvas. “Cork and Canvas is very popular, especially for girls’ night out,” she said. The center also offers birthday parties and additional events, which can be found on the calendar at www.farmhouseinthecity.com. A summer camp will take place in July.

The art and activity center can now be found at 1094 Green Street where it resides in a 3,000-square-foot 1908 house. According to owner Robin Donovan, the center has tripled in size from the previous location in downtown Alpharetta. “I grew out of the last place,” she said. “It was literally busting at the seams.” Mrs. Donovan said she was initially considering moving to Canton Street in Roswell, but she said it was too busy. “Then I just started driving around and found the place across the street from Greenwood’s Restaurant,” she said. “It was perfect."
