What does your donation support?

At Artscope, we foster emotional well-being, expansive and intentional inclusivity, and environmental harmony through imaginative art, dialogue, and visionary play. 


Since 2002, we’ve helped thousands of children in St. Louis develop their creative skills through making art.  We’ve given thousands of St. Louis children a place to let their imaginations run wild through creative play in the beautiful and natural surroundings of Tower Grove Park.  We’ve built an inclusive community where all children belong and childhood is honored.  

Your donation helps us live our core values.


When you give, you help Artscope:


  • Support working artists.  Our programs are taught by professional artists who are also educators. We value the work of our artists and believe artists should always be paid a living wage for their work.  

  • Purchase quality art supplies.  While as an organization we are committed to creative reuse of discarded materials and recycling whenever possible, we also believe that children deserve abundant art supplies to create.  

  • Create programs that are accessible.  We strive to keep our programs reasonably priced, and we are also committed to offering access to families in St. Louis who struggle financially.  You’ll often find Artscope in spaces where participation in the creativity is free--festivals, community events and city parks. 

  • Give scholarships. Artscope reserves a significant amount of spots in our Summer Camp Create and School’s Out programs for scholarships for St. Louis families in need, as high as 20% of registration slots in the summer.  

  • Grow into the future.  Artscope wants to expand our reach outside of our Cottage in Tower Grove Park and its surrounding neighborhoods.  We have big plans to make ourselves more mobile, so we can reach more communities that want more access to creative experiences. Want to help?  Contact us!
