Chickasaw Arts Academy

Laura Stewart, Executive Officer of the Chickasaw Nation Division of Arts and Humanities

The Chickasaw Nation founded the Summer Arts Academy in 2005 to help students of all ages discover and nurture their passion for the arts. Students as young as eight can enroll in the program, rotating through classes to experience different forms of creative expression, ranging from creative writing and visual arts to dance and theatre. Once they’ve had the opportunity to hone in on a specialty, students between the ages of 11 and 13 can choose interdisciplinary classes to further develop their skills.
