Make this summer memorable! Join Artscope for a crazy fun art camp inside historic Tower Grove Park. Artscope offers ten weeks of summer camp, each with a unique theme, where campers will explore the park, make friends, play games and make loads of art with local, professional artists from St. Louis.
Camps and classes are held in Artscope's historic park cottage and utilize a mix of the natural park environment and urban landscape as an outdoor classroom. Students are encouraged by Artscope's teaching artists to explore their own creative ideas while tying in concepts of diversity, ecology, teamwork and community through a variety of art forms.
Camps are for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade. Early and after-care is available. Contact us for scholarship information.
Volunteer opportunities for teens are also available.
