About ArtWorks

The Mission of St. Louis ArtWorks is to broaden educational and career opportunities for youth in the St. Louis region through apprenticeships in the arts and through community collaborations.

In addition to developing talent in artistic disciplines, ArtWorks teaches the business of being artists, as well as helping the young art entrepreneurs develop positive social, creative-thinking, teamwork, and character education skills.
