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.

ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMS

For well over a decade, Artscope has been proud to offer local schools an artist-in-residence, providing much-needed access to arts education for students who may not otherwise benefit from the creative and life skills that are developed through
art-making.

 

In the 2019-2020 school year, Artscope is partnering again with St. Francis Cabrini School, where Emily Hemeyer teaches art classes to students in grades K-8, and Marian Middle School, where Sarah Paulsen teaches art in this all-girls middle school.

In Spring 2020 we are starting residencies with Kairos Academy and St. Cecilia School and academy. 

If you are interested in embedding one of Artscope’s skilled, professional teaching artists in your school to provide high-quality arts learning to your students, please call us or contact info@artscopestl.org We’d love to start a conversation with you.

PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

Artscope is mobile! Not only do we provide arts learning in our Tower Grove cottage, we also partner with local schools and community organizations to bring the art to where you are! Some of our recent partnerships include:

  • Adult crafting workshops with the St. Louis County Libraries

  • Before school arts enrichment with Mallinckrodt Academy, St. Louis Public Schools

  • Summer pop-up art classes in Fox Park with DeSales Community Development

  • Neighborhood Mural Program with Tower Grove Neighborhood Community Development Corporation


Community is a core value at Artscope, and we value the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations to increase access to artistic experiences for all St. Louisians. Contact us to get the conversations started! info@artscopestl.org
