WaterWorks Building

WaterWorks is housed in a renovated historical building in Newblock Park that once served as Tulsa's water treatment plant and later the site of the City's first public swimming pool. It was named WaterWorks to maintain those historical roots.

WaterWorks Art Center Council

The WaterWorks Council, a non-profit organization, raises funds for the center, initiates projects, and co-sponsors scholarships for at-risk children.

Bringing Fine Arts to Children

Bringing fine arts to children is a major objective of the center. Working with both private and public schools, WaterWorks creates art-enrichment programs for children from kindergarten through 12th grade.



Studio Open House
The center also works with school grant programs to provide onsite workshops tailored to the needs of each school.

Each spring and summer WaterWorks
offers reasonably-priced fine arts camps
for children. Camp projects are theme
based. Children work in a variety
of media for in-depth art experiences.

An annual Summer Camp Art Exhibit is held in August at the studio.
