There is a creative spirit in all of us that nourishes our humanity and enriches our society. We grow a creative culture that encourages people of all backgrounds, ages and skill levels to explore, participate and experiment in the visual arts. First City Art Center (FCAC) engages the community in participating in that creative process at a “working” art center. Through a broad range of workshops, events and outreach programs that serves over 1,000 adults and children each year.
