The Children’s Village at the annual MOSAICS Missouri Festival for the Arts is a special place where kids of all ages can learn about and try their hand at the artistic process. This area includes the “Kids Creation Station” where young patrons under the age of 17 can utilize their artistic skills in creating their own masterpieces. Each year, the MOSAICS Art Festival Association provides the art supplies necessary for children to create their own souvenir of their visit to the MOSAICS Festival.

The Children’s Village arts program and instruction is organized by the Foundry Art Centre, with supervision by professional artists and experienced art teachers for a truly educational hands-on experience.

This year, Mercy Kids will provide a special, community arts project that children can participate in, by creating a “square” to be incorporated into a large, creative quilt. This creative quilt will be displayed at Mercy Kids locations throughout St. Louis after the MOSAICS Festival is over, and then auctioned off at the annual Mercy Kids Gala in 2016.

 

Art for Youth Gallery – sponsored by Mercy Kids

The Art for Youth Gallery is a special area where children under the age of 18 can explore their personal taste in art, learn about different styles of art and purchase professional art donated by Festival artists for a nominal fee.

Purchase fine art at our Youth Fine Art Gallery tent. Open to ALL young people through 17 years of age.

Youth may purchase ONE PIECE of fine art of their liking for a nominal fee. Located next to the Children’s Village, YOUNG shoppers will be admitted WITHOUT adults to purchase fine art of their choice (while supplies last). Only youth are allowed into the tent to choose and purchase. We wish them not to be influenced by others, but pursue their own interest. All of the artwork has been generously donated by the artists exhibiting this weekend during the 2015 Mosaics festival. Mosaics feels it is important to expose the youth of today to fine art and stimulate their interest for the future. One goal of Mosaics is to ensure that the arts are sequentially taught to all students in schools by qualified teachers. This is an educational responsibility that meets both the needs of individual students and our society. Education is incomplete without a core knowledge in the arts.

Mentor Me Program and Exhibition

Its purpose is to recognize the school programs and teachers that create an environment to help students develop and nurture their skills in the arts.  “Mentor Me” has touched lives of hundreds of children and inspired them to continue their love for the arts.

A “call for entry” is sent each year in the spring to schools in the St. Charles/St. Louis regional area. Teachers and students are invited to participate and showcase their works of art. Each art teacher is asked to select two student’s art work; and in the spirit of “Mentor Me”, each art teacher is exhibiting one recent piece of their own art work.

The “Mentor Me” Exhibition is typically on display in the Baue Family Children’s Gallery at the Foundry Art Centre from September through October each year. The Foundry Art Centre is located at 520 North Main Centre in Historic St. Charles.

Students and teachers are recognized and given certificates of participation at the closing reception in October.

Please refer to the Mentor Me tab for more information.

MENTOR ME
The 19th Annual Exhibition

The 2015 “Mentor Me” Exhibition – celebrating its’ 19th Anniversary – was on display September 11th through October 11th, 2015 in the Baue Family Children’s Gallery at the Foundry Art Centre, 520 North Main Center, St. Charles, Missouri.

The annual “Mentor Me” exhibition was an opportunity for students and teachers to participate in a collaborative show. The purposes of “Mentor Me” are:
•To recognize young artists for their creativity, imagination, and consistency of their work in the arts.
•To recognize art teachers to their dedication in nurturing the arts within their students.
•To recognize the schools committed to helping their students further develop their skills in the fine arts.

“Mentor Me”, a program supported by Missouri Governor Jeremiah W. (Jay) Nixon, acknowledges Art Teachers and School Districts who create nurturing environments through which students can develop their skills in art. It also honors the selected students and celebrates their creative spirit. For eligibility in this program, Mentor Me requested that teachers from the St. Charles and St. Louis region select the artwork of up to 3 of their students for the exhibition. In addition, each teacher was asked to exhibit a piece of his or her own artwork. There are 14 schools participating in the 2015 “Mentor Me” program —13 teachers and 40 students—for a total of 53 participants.

A Closing Reception was held on October, 11th, 2015 at the Foundry Art Centre.  Each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation signed by Governor Nixon.  The reception was free and open to the public.

A special thank you goes out to Melissa Whitwam, M.F.A, Exhibitions Manager for the Foundry Art Centre, and Mentor Me Chairperson and Artist Advisory Board Member Diane Papageorge, for their efforts in making the annual “Mentor Me” program a community success!
