Who We Are


Creating an environment where all of today's youth have the opportunity to thrive and contribute to tomorrow's world.


To provide equitable access to arts education so that the next generation has creative tools to uncover their potential and imagine their futures.

FAME Center provides equal access to arts education so kids everywhere have creative tools to uncover their potential and imagine a bright future. We do this through music lessons and art classes for all ages. Early childhood classes, drama and theater, creative writing skills, visual and digital art and music and art therapy are all part of our multi-disciplinary art educational program. Financial aid and scholarships are available by applying online or calling our office. 


FAME Center was established as a 501(c)(3) in 2018 to directly confront the lack of accessibility to music and fine arts education in under-resourced Chicago communities. We work tirelessly to fulfill our mission of fostering creativity by providing transformative education through creative engagement resulting in the growth of the human spirit through the arts.
