The Rail Arts District Studio Cruise is back.

Trolleys will take event-goers from art studio to art studio on Mar. 19 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The Rail Arts District (RAD) “spans the rail line running from Avondale Estates to Decatur” and includes “studios such as MudFire, Atlanta Hot Glass, Paper Trail Art Center, Little Tree Art Studios, and Garage Door Studio,” according to the website.

Participants can try their hand at throwing a pot, blowing glass, learning to paint, or making paper. And of course, local restaurants and brewers will be selling food and drinks.
