  • We believe in partnering with artists and arts organizations, community partners, and business supports to pursue mutually beneficial goals and rich cultural experiences.
  • We believe in the value of our audiences, the talent of our artists, and the generosity of our funders.
  • We believe in embracing an internal staff culture that values innovation and cooperation, utilizes talent and skills, and provides opportunities for growth and learning.
  • We believe students should have access to developing technologies and be provided opportunities to build the necessary skills to participate and lead in a technologically developing society.


The original founder of LoveWorks Academy of the Arts began with a mission to build a school that would grow the whole child, a school where children would be challenged academically, physically and artistically and where their day would be full and enriching.  LoveWorks embodies this vision daily with a joint effort to saturate them with the human need to be cared for and to matter as human beings. 


We offer a rich visual and performing arts education, helping each student develop their whole being and become effective citizens in our changing world.   We encourage students to be engaged and empowered.  Our highly qualified staff of trained professionals prepares students to reach their goals and dreams with a focus on every child being prepared to attend any first-class secondary schooling opportunity.


LoveWorks is geographically located on the border of and serves a large population of North Minneapolis families.  Our proverbial mandate is to “train up a child in the way he should go…”  Parents are critical to this vision and are leaders of our their children’s success. We prioritize aiding and supporting parents in reinforcing the shared values of the school and empower parents to be involved, engaged, and lead. The LoveWorks Way!!
