DeltaARTS is dedicated to bringing theatre, music, dance, and visual arts to West Memphis and the surrounding community. With an emphasis on imaginative teaching and learning, students ranging from pre-K to 12th grade are introduced to the arts through a variety of unique programs.
DeltaARTS started in 1972 as a volunteer-operated adult community theatre housed in our founder’s home and has since blossomed into a multi-disciplinary arts agency that serves more than 12,000 residents of all ages from the Glenn P. Schoettle Arts Education Center, a state-of-the-art facility. By providing our community with quality arts experiences rooted in research-based philosophies and practice, DeltaARTS enriches lives and fosters lifelong learning.
DeltaARTS currently offers three umbrella programs, which provide imaginative learning opportunities for the diverse populations of eastern Arkansas and surrounding areas.
In addition to receiving the Arkansas Governor’s Award for Arts Education twice (2002 and 2015), DeltaARTS has been recognized by the Arkansas Arts Council, Arkansas Delta Byways, Junior Auxiliary of Crittenden County, West Memphis Chamber of Commerce, and West Memphis School District, for our contributions to arts in education in Arkansas and surrounding communities.
