About Us

Since 1978, the DAC has thrived as one of Austin’s most cherished and affordable community arts centers, featuring live performances, gallery exhibits, and art classes. From our fine arts preschool to our popular summer camps and afterschool arts programs, we’ve got your kids art cravings covered. Practice drawing, painting, darkroom photography, ceramics and more in a supportive adult studio environment. Check out creative opportunities in our Artist Resource Center. Visit our 2,400 square foot gallery space, catch a live theater or music performance in our 150 seat theater, and meet new friends at our monthly Date Night. With so much going on, there is always something for everyone at the DAC.

The Dougherty Arts Center is part of the City of Austin's Division of Museums and Cultural Programs through the Department of Parks and Recreation.
