Creative Arts Center of Dallas

The Spring Bash is about more than just Shop+Party+Art+Craft. While we certainly know how to have a good time, we also like to give back. At each of the Bashes, we select one community enriching organization to be the recipient of funds raised in the photo booth. We are happy to announce that this year we have selected the 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 visions. CAC believes the creative spirit exists within us all, and community can be built from a group of people creating art. 

Sabrina from The Pig and The Peacock, says, "We chose the CAC because they provide a positive environment to foster creativity and community while teaching art classes to teenagers and adults of all skill levels. The classes that they teach cover a wide range of arts and crafts that we thought was complimentary to the skills of the members of Etsy Dallas (Jewelry, Photography, Clay, Fiber Arts, etc.).

They also provide outreach to Dallas area children. The CAC has implemented an exciting program called, unseenamerica in which children learn photography skills to document their own lives and exhibit their photographs in a wide-reaching community exhibition.

You can find out more about the Creative Arts Center of Dallas and the inspiring work that they do at their website.
