OYOU CENTER FOR CREATIVE ARTS

Events

The programs the OYOU offers range from individual to group instruction on musical instruments, songwriting, and creative writing. The OYOU Center for the Creative Arts also seeks programs that enhance quality of life through art education and instruction. We host group discussions on wellness. We celebrate educating artists on the business end of their creative outlets, and actively work to provide education and programs for those who would otherwise be unable to embrace and enjoy the arts. The OYOU is a place where anyone — regardless of income, can learn how to "Own Your Own Universe" through the arts.

As a Grammy award-winning producer and musician, the Lubbock-born Maines has played an instrumental role in the creation of some of the Lone Star State's most famous and beloved albums. Maines began his recording and producing career in 1974. Over the past 40 years, Maines has worked on approximately four-thousand albums alongside some of the most significant figures in country, rock, and Texas music. In addition to his producing credits, Maines is an A-list steel guitar player and multi-instrumentalist. His work has been heard on countless recordings. Maines has been inducted into the Buddy Holly Walk of Fame in Lubbock, Texas, individually and as a member of the Maines Brother's Band. He was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame June 2014. He has made more appearances on the PBS show than anyone else in the history of the program.
