Jun. 27 - Aug. 17“ARTS MAGNET” FIGURE DRAWING
The Creative Arts Center of Dallas
2360 Laughlin Drive
Dallas, TX 75228

The Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC), a nonprofit school of visual arts and community arts organization geared to beginning, emerging and working artists, will host its annual show of work by Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts students who study figure drawing at CAC year-round. The show will run through Sunday, August 17 with an artist reception Friday, June 27 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the school’s main building at 2360 Laughlin Drive, Dallas, 75228. Curated by Nancy Miller, a former teacher at Booker T., the show features the work of 12 student artists: Sophia Anthony, Francesca Bartos, Kira Bell, Matthew Bradley, Sydney Conner, Nik Hermanovski, Veronica Jones, Margaret Mickelsen, Kaila Parrish, Ebonie Pollock, Avery Storms and Robin Vuitch. CAC has organized and hosted the figure drawing classes for the school for several years. According to Diana Pollak, CAC’s Executive Director, the show gives these students an opportunity to create classical figure drawings with a nude model. “Understandably, DISD policy does not allow nude models to be used in any art classes on campus, but these are students who will need such work for their college portfolios, said Ms. Pollak. “Taught by Arts Magnet teachers or former teachers, the CAC class allows for these talented students to get the curriculum they require to advance their studies.” Located on a two-acre campus four miles east of downtown Dallas, CAC offers more than 500 classes and workshops per year in such disciplines as ceramics, clay sculpture, creative writing, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal arts, mosaic, painting, photography, printmaking, stone carving and woodworking. Cultivating creativity for nearly 50 years, CAC also offers free arts programming to disadvantaged children. Not only a visual arts school, CAC is a thriving arts community for a diverse range of students from teens to seniors.
