Creative Arts Center of Dallas
The mission of the Creative Arts Center of Dallas is to provide a nurturing environment for people to discover, develop and express their artistic vision. CAC was founded as a public arts center in 1965 in El Sibil, the studio of renowned Western artist Frank Reaugh (1860-1945). Led by sculptor Octavio Medellin, CAC remained in its Oak Cliff location until the early 80s. In addition to the traditional arts of drawing, painting and clay sculpture, CAC has since added ceramics, mosaic, jewelry, fused glass, metal arts, stone carving, photography and printmaking. CAC is now located 4 miles east of downtown Dallas on a two-acre campus off of Ferguson Road in a converted elementary school building built by the WPA during the Great Depression. Last year, 1,500 students took over 500 classes and workshops at the Creative Arts Center of Dallas.
