There is a creative spirit in all of us that works to nourish our humanity and enrich our society. First City Art Center (FCAC) engages the community by encouraging open participation in the creative processes of a working art center. We feature a broad and expanding range of workshops, classes, events, exhibitions, field trips, and outreach programs.
Serving over 10,000 adults and children each year, FCAC is unique in offering the only public glass blowing facility in Northwest Florida! By continually striving to lead the arts community while ensuring quality programming, we facilitate public access to the arts offering affordable programs for all ages and skill levels. We also host unforgettably fun events, so come on out and enjoy yourself for a great cause!
We support a cooperative environment that nurtures the artist and the observer while building a community around the arts that facilitates open dialogue, camaraderie, public service, education, mentorship and economic opportunities. FCAC maintains several core values, effectively guiding us in our mission – leadership, integrity, accessibility, vitality and collaboration.
