St Louis Canvass Project
Developed by the Regional Arts Commission and designed for students in grades 6-8, the St. Louis Canvass Project is a free* youth engagement program that uses the arts to unlock skills students need to succeed in life – problem solving, collaboration, communication, imagination and creativity – with a special emphasis on leadership development.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
The St. Louis Canvass Project is free to students that live in one of the following school districts: St. Louis Public Schools, School District of University City, Normandy Schools Collaborative, Ritenour School District, Jennings School District, Riverview Gardens School District, Ferguson-Florissant School District, Hazelwood School District. Students living outside of those school districts wishing to participate may do so with a fee.
The St. Louis Canvass Project is offered at four sites located throughout the St. Louis region, one Saturday per month in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020. Students meet at their selected site and start the day with a fun, artistic activity. They then board a bus to experience museum exhibitions, theatrical events, behind-the-scenes tours of music or art studios, or other cultural destinations. They are then returned to the host site where they will reflect on their experience.
