Oil and Cotton

837 W. 7th St. Dallas, TX 75208 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-942-0474

Location Description:

This Oak Cliff collective offers art lovers the chance to not only purchase works of art, but to create their own via workshops and classes in an insane variety of media, from shooting Polaroids and writing manifestos to making natural beauty products or weaving baskets. There are kids' classes too, if you suspect your rug rat might be the next Van Gogh. (Hopefully without that whole ear-amputation thing.)
