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.
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 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.
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.
