About Us

The Fine Arts Institute is the place for creativity and excitement. In 2016 we are celebrating 31 years as Edmond’s nonprofit community arts organization offering educational enrichment for adults and children in visual and performing arts.

Class curriculum includes: drawing, painting, clay, pottery, theatre arts, mixed media, printmaking, jewelry design, seasonal art, and more. The FAI sponsors the Edmond Youth Chorus, two children’s plays, a statewide Youth Impressions juried art show and features a new exhibit each month in its gallery plus much more.

The FAI is a financially sound and well respected non profit organization. Strong partnerships, expanding cultural programming and strong enrollment continues. The Edmond community has embraced the FAI for over 30 years with students and corporate and individual patrons. Led by an outstanding board of directors of Edmond’s finest leaders, a talented and certified faculty, and dedicated staff, the FAI looks to the future to continue to provide cultural enrichment for our community.
