About Us

A dream became a reality in March, 2004, for the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond. From a classroom in an Edmond church in 1985 to a new, beautiful and appropriate building, Edmond’s non-profit arts organization has grown with the community.

Donations for our new facility ranged from a $20 bill handed to me by an acquaintance in a grocery store to a generous $200,000 matching grant. Our sincere thanks to the hundreds of donors…corporations, foundations, businesses, organizations, and individuals…who helped with our dream.

We continue to raise funds for the necessary touches to make the Fine Arts Institute a special and creative place for all ages and all stages. Now as we expand our programming and curriculum, the board, faculty and staff are prepared to move forward to further enrich the arts for you.
