MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

The Moultrie community came together to send off one of their own.

Karen Sasine has been teaching mosaic and senior art classes at the Colquitt County Arts Center for the last 16 years.

Karen is moving to Canton to be closer to her grandson and her family.

Throughout her career, Karen has taught the Moultrie community the beauty of art and has helped well over 1,000 students in her classes and camps.

Although she is leaving to be closer to her family, she says she will never forget her family here.

"I just love it. I mean, this is my family," said Karen. "It's nice to live in a small town and an art community this big that's welcomed me with open arms and given me so much. So, I'm grateful. I'm really grateful."

She hopes to join an art center in Canton because she says teaching art is her passion.
