60 yrs


ACA encourages, publicizes and promotes the creative work of our registered members. It brings our members in direct contact with outstanding artists, lecturers and demonstrators.

It is an alert, working organization dedicated to the preservation, practice and the promotion of realism art, established to provide an artistic atmosphere based on traditional principles for the creation of fine art.

Our History page tells how a couple of Dallas artists took an idea and developed it into a resource for area artists that has continued for 60 years! Check out our Meetings and other pages to learn more about ACA and the benefits you recieve by joining other metroplex artists creating realism artwork.
