Saint Louis Art Museum Offers Summer Youth SmART Program

The Saint Louis Art Museum invites community and school groups to participate in its annual free summer arts education program. This year, Youth smART explores a wide variety of sculpture from around the world. Come celebrate the wonders of three-dimensional art by studying large and small-scale works of art made of wood, metal, cloth, stone, and more. After sketching works of art in the Museum’s collection, each student will design and create a sculpture to take home. Selected projects will be featured on the Museum’s See For Yourself online student sculpture gallery.
