Cross Training

Our Mission

To provide opportunities for attaining knowledge and skills that promote well-balanced human development, to advance a sense of community, and to provide outlets for expression through involvement in the arts.

We are dedicated to the philosophy that the study and practice of art is essential to one's educational experience in order to be a more balanced individual and contributor to society and the world. The CAC is committed to providing educational and cultural opportunities at affordable rates to everyone in the Tobacco Valley, regardless of gender, age, race, creed, or ability.

Your generosity and support help us achieve our goals.

The CAC is the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the Creative Arts Center.

If you are a member of the CAC, then you are a member of the Creative Arts Council - not the Creative Arts Center.

The Creative Arts Council (CAC) Board meets at 6:00 pm on the second Wednesday of each month at the Creative Arts Center.

All members of the Creative Arts Council are welcome to attend CAC meetings. Please join us!
