About us

Highland Lakes Creative Arts (the arts) operates in the space between imagination and appreciation. We are a 501C3 non-profit initiative that fosters and promotes the creative and performing arts in the Texas Highland Lakes.

Primarily located in Marble Falls, Texas, we are in the heart of the wonderful Hill Country, along the banks of the scenic Colorado River. The small towns in this region of Texas have long been a magnet for artists and performers seeking inspiration. At the same time, thousands of visitors come to enjoy outdoor recreation, strolls along shops and galleries and a year-long variety of arts and musical events.

The arts vision is to bring together a collaboration of communities, creative professionals, businesses, education entities and mentor programs to further the cultural arts in our area. To achieve our goals, we organize events that are readily available to the public. Currently, the arts organize two major visual arts celebrations, Paint the Town each Spring and Sculpture on Main a year long public art exhibit.

Art education and appreciation are an ongoing part of our mission. Co-ordinated with Marble Falls schools, children benefit from demonstrations, classes and competitions throughout the year.

Our dream is to transform the Highland Lakes into THE cultural arts center of Texas.
