ST. LOUIS, MO – Contemporary Art Museum, or CAM, offers enrollment in New Art in the Neighborhood program for teens living in St. Louis before August 31. This program aims to enhance the creativity of young artists in St. Louis.

A total of 20 young artists selected in this program will be guided through art training at a pre-professional level by educational staff and virtual meetings with artists. This program is carried out free of charge with materials used in contemporary art-making practice.

Students who pass through the competitive arts selection will get lessons that they have not previously received in the school curriculum for 12 weeks, starting on September 18 to December 11. Students will meet in a group meeting held on Saturday afternoons until 4:00 p.m. The entire series of activities will be carried out in accordance with the applicable COVID protocol, among other things: the participants are required to wear masks, practice social distancing, and not exceed the recommended capacity.

Students who take part in the New Art in the Neighborhood program for one calendar year or two consecutive semesters and with an adequate art portfolio will have the opportunity to become members of the CAM-University Credit Program. This means they will get three hours of tuition credit specifically if enrolled at the Kansas City Art Institute or Webster University in an undergraduate program or other applicable degrees.

The New Art in the Neighborhood program this fall will be hosted by a resident teaching artist, Ryan McCartney. Students who are currently in grades 9 to 12 and live in the greater St. Louis, can register for the NAN program via this link. Further information about this program can be found on CAM's official Instagram accounts, @camstl, and @cam_youthprograms.
