OUR CORE VALUES
We understand that creativity is a set of skills that are nurtured with lots of opportunity to practice, and developing these skills is critical to a child’s future success. We value each child’s unique ideas and approach to problem solving.
We seek out diverse staff, students, influences and opportunities. We strive to ensure the children and families in Artscope’s programs reflect the diversity of our surrounding Tower Grove community, and St. Louis City.
We look to the natural environment surrounding us in beautiful Tower Grove Park for inspiration. We strive to repurpose, re-imagine and re-use wherever possible as we make art.
We help each other as we create together. We know that sometimes the best thoughts and ideas are generated through the group thinking, dreaming and making together.
We spend as much time as possible engaged in imaginative play, in a technology-free zone. Free play allows us to move our bodies, relax our minds and think up the most creative ideas!
