Children's Gallery: St. Louis BookWorks, "BeeHive First Edition"

Helping St. Louis children discover their potential since 1988. St. Louis BWorks was built on the idea that everyone deserves the chance to be more and to gain the skills they need to pursue their dreams. We believe that "at-risk” children — or any young people for that matter — can thrive when they have the opportunity to challenge their abilities in a safe, supportive environment.

The St. Louis Book Works program gives kids the chance to to write and illustrate their own books, under the supervision of tutor-editors. Through the free course, they receive guidance on selecting topics, in developing
stories and refining illustrations. In addition, our volunteer mentors help with proper spelling, grammar, and sentence structure.

The individual instruction students receive in the St. Louis Book Works program makes it possible for us to work with students of all levels and experience, even those who cannot yet read a word.

Other programs offered at St. Louis BWorks include Earn-A-Bike and Earn-A-Computer. For more information please visit us at www.BWorks.org.

Children's Gallery: Sensation (Missouri School for the Blind and Central Institute for the Deaf)

Sensation
Sensation

Sensation is an exhibit of work by the talented students at Central Insitute for the Deaf and Missouri School for the Blind. Originally meant to be an exhibit about the senses of vision and touch, this turns out to be a celebration of all the senses—from the visual dazzle of glitter and translucent colors of paintings on plexi-glas, to the soft rattling sounds of mobiles moving with the air current, to the sense of texture of the landscapes and shaving cream drawings...and who doesn't smell and taste the waffles, tamales, french fries, and other charming culinary delights?

One sense on display here is not in our normal vocabulary of what we learn in science class—the sense of play. These students had fun and it shows. Like a lot of children's work, it reminds us of why we make art in the first place—to dig into materials and experiment, to ask "what if?" and then simply to try it. »Read more...
