To educate children through character building activities that encourage a love of the arts and inspire them to succeed.
We are an organization devoted to enriching the lives of youth through the power of the arts. Using the arts as a catalyst for change, we help guide our students as they seek to impact their world.
Our programs are designed to encourage every child’s creativity in a positive environment. Our hope is that each child will walk away with a stronger sense of self-worth, more confidence and a wildly creative spirit.
Students will receive excellent training in a positive and professional environment. Our classes are designed to bring out the best in each of our students. Our faculty members are all college educated and love teaching and inspiring their students.
We strongly believe ArtWorks Academy is like no other. We invite you to enroll your child in our classes with confidence!
While growing up in Edmond and Oklahoma City, Katie and Cheryl met at a performing arts academy. Over the years their friendship grew and they talked about how they might one day open a performing arts academy of their own. Fast forward about 16 years after they met and it finally became a reality! While performing together Katie and Cheryl met their future husbands; brothers Michael and Jonathan Morris. After years of careful planning ArtWorks Academy of Performing Arts opened its doors to the public in August of 2007 with its inaugural production of Disney’s High School Musical! Over the next six years word of mouth spread and ArtWorks Academy has served hundreds of students of all ages!
