BEFORE YOU REGISTER!  Please note that in order to register for Artscope's School's Out or Summer Camp Create, your child must be 5 years old by the date of enrollment, and in kindergarten.  For Summer Camp Create, we believe our rising kindergarteners have the best experience when they have had a full year of full-day preschool in a classroom setting prior to Summer Camp Create. If they do not, we ask you to wait a year before enrolling.  Please contact info@artscopestl.org if you have questions. We reserve the right to cancel a registration and issue a refund if your child is under 5 years old.

Artscope’s Cottage is a fun and unique place to host your child’s birthday party. Or any celebration for your child and their group of friends! And its not just kids who can have a party at Artscope--grab your besties and plan a creative and fun evening out with our artists!


Parties are 90 minutes long, and include a teaching artist, a 60 minute make-and-take art project chosen from our menu of options, and 30 minutes built in for cake, ice cream and presents. 

For grown up parties, we offer the same deal--but feel free to bring your own grow up beverages!


We offer party packages for up to 10, 15 or 20 participants. Participants must currently be enrolled in kindergarten through age 101.  


Artscope can tailor an enriching experience for your Daisy to Senior Girl Scout Troop, or Boy Scout troop!  


Whether your troop members would like to earn a badge, do a Make and Take, create DIY swaps, or increase their artistic skills, we’ll host a workshop for your troop of up to 16 in our Cottage in Tower Grove Park. Or, for an additional fee, we can come to you!

Providing increased access to the arts for children is integral to Artscope’s mission, and we seek to provide up to 20% of our Summer Camp Create participants with scholarship support so children of all backgrounds may attend Artscope.  

Our scholarships are based on need, and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until we fill all available spots. A family may request up to two weeks of scholarship support each summer, per child. Scholarships must be requested by the parent or legal guardian of the participants. Families with multiple siblings are welcome to apply.

Our Summer Camp Create scholarship application is now open.  Check our Summer Camp Create page to find the application.
