Writing is a solitary practice where beauty is shaped through key strokes and pen edits. As true as this is, there is much to discover from others who commit themselves to story and the discipline of writing.

2017 Luncheon Dates
- Friday, June 23
- Friday, July 28
- Friday, August 25
There are few things more sacred in life than points of origin. The point from where thoughts, ideas, and perspectives begin holds potent ability to echo and endure through generations and to shape how people and cultures both speak and act.
How a person thinks and interacts with the world is the essence of living and the result of a starting point.
Origin is an Art House Dallas program crafted to establish a wholeness and connectedness between art and faith with the ultimate intent to establish a sacred perspective in how the individual responds creatively. We believe that God, as the original and ultimate Creator, made mankind after His own image, endowed us with the faculties to think and create, and calls us to be like him in our participation of cultivating goodness, truth, and beauty.
Origin is comprised of a series of monthly luncheons featuring presentations and facilitated discussions directed by Art House Dallas leaders. Beyond the Origin monthly gatherings, Art House Dallas will offer one-on-one mentoring and discipleship sessions focused to help individuals delve deeper into the conversation on the relationship between art and faith. (discipleship questionnaire below)
Location: Museum of Biblical Art - 7500 Park Ln, Dallas, 75225
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Date(s): Fridays - June 23, July 28, August 25
RSVP: Space is limited. Please let us know youre coming by registering below.
If you are interested in learning more about Origin or one-on-one discipleship, please fill out our questionnaire.

Is money a struggle? Do you wonder how to make it? How to make enough of it? How to keep it? How to invest it wisely? How to give it away? How to stay creative and pay your bills?
Or maybe you’re doing alright but would like to be creating more, influencing more, and making more?
Whether you like it or not -- if you create things and sell them -- you are a business. And, most of us could use a tip or two on running our businesses better.
The Art of Business is a 6-session program that is designed specifically to help creative professionals think and act differently about art, money and marketing.
Program participants will hear personal testimonies and learn from successful artists and experts in the fields of finance and marketing.
The course curriculum will also cover the basics of:
Assets & Liabilities
Income, Expenses & Profits
Profit & Loss Statements
The Power of a Great Team
Art House Dallas believes in an “abundance mentality” and wants to help artists move away from a common and harmful “scarcity mentality.” What this means is that we believe sufficient resources exist to do creative work for the common good -- that is, if we steward our resources wisely. The Art of Business seeks to help artists to do just that.
If you are interested in learning more about Art of Business or would like to attend, please fill out our questionnaire below.
"Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered." (Proverbs 11:25)
"To whom much is given, much is required." (Luke 12:48)
Deploy is designed for artists to share their creativity with people who may have little or no exposure to arts and culture.
In its first year, participating artists will be “deployed” to serve at Baylor Hospital, Children’s Medical Center and West Dallas Community School. The goal is to bring light and love into underserved areas and to help fan the flames of growth, healing and transformation.
For now, the artistic disciplines involved will include singer/songwriters, photographers, visual artists and writers. Please fill out a survey below to let us know how you’d like to help.
