The Hallmark of Excellence
in Doll Artistry since 1976
Founded by Bess Fantl and five other doll artists, the Original Doll Artists Council of America is an international organization of artists who create original dolls and figurative sculpture.
ODACA is dedicated to the goals of promoting original doll artists and their work, achieving and maintaining a high quality of original doll art, and educating collectors and the public about the art of the doll and doll crafting.
ODACA promotes and encourages the work of emerging and established doll artists through artist's workshops, sponsored educational and social events, exhibitions, and doll conventions.
Today ODACA stands for high quality in expressive doll art and member artists must demonstrate a high level of proficiency in their work.

A New Look... a Bright Future!
Looking ahead to the coming years, ODACA is excited about the future of the organization through growing the membership and creating a platform for inspiring, showcasing and promoting doll artists world-wide. To do this we have undertaken a complete redesign of our website.
Over the next few months we will be introducing the new look a few pages at a time until the project is complete. It is our intent to make this change as seamless as possible, but there is always the possibility of a few small glitches that may need tweaking. Please do not hesitate to contact our Webmaster if you encounter any problems.
We sincerely hope that you will like the new look and continue to support ODACA as we move ahead.
