Where the art is

Oklahoma City has artistic opportunities for every interest and discipline. From taking art classes to supporting community theater, you are sure to find the perfect place to embrace your hidden artistic talents while supporting the arts in Oklahoma City.

Whether you want to brush up on your basket-weaving or discover your inner Picasso, the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center offers workshops and classes in a variety of mediums. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art also offers a roster of classes geared for both families and adults of all skill levels, including a studio sampler class for those who want to take an art class but aren’t sure where to begin. The artist-in-residence program at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel also offers drop-in opportunities to explore interesting art forms – current artist-in-residence Gayle Curry paints with encaustics (wax), and her live studio space is open to the public. Be sure and check out area art galleries for other options.

For a taste of local thespian talent, the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, Jewel Box Theatre, and the Carpenter Square Theatre all produce a full roster of live performances, ranging from classic musicals to locally-scripted dramas. And if you want to combine dinner and a show into one extravaganza, Greater Oklahoma City is home to the state’s only full-time professional dinner theater. The Yellow Rose Dinner Theater showcases Oklahoma talent in original productions, all while the audience gets to enjoy a delicious meal. These community-based theaters offer audition opportunities, so if theater footlights are calling your name, be sure to check their websites for audition notices.

If making beautiful music is more your style, you can also join one of OKC’s many community choirs or orchestra organizations. Canterbury Voices offers choruses for both adults and children, and its 125-member adult chorus is the largest of its kind in the state. OK City Chorus is an all-women chorus with a goal to preserve the American art form of four-part a cappella barbershop music. For the former band geeks among us (no judgement), the Oklahoma Community Orchestra offers performance opportunities with its 75-member organization.
