Freedom Arts & Education Center is a youth empowerment organization. We focus on providing relevant arts education all throughout the St. Louis area, but spend most of our time making art, doing homework, and learning life skills with a group of young people living in northwest St. Louis City. The mission of Freedom Arts & Education Center is to help young people become the highly creative, literate, passionate, independent thinkers they are capable of becoming. By providing arts education, academic tutoring, mentoring, and leadership training to the underserved youth of St. Louis, Freedom Arts aims to inspire young people to realize and utilize their God-given talents and worth.

Art & Academic Workshops
These workshops are interactive seminars that provide students of all ages and backgrounds with unique and meaningful learning opportunities that combine arts and academics.
Create Days make space and gather resources for ongoing individual works, collaborative projects, and exposure trips.
We offer week-long summer camps offering unique art and academics workshops and every Augus we host our Freedom Arts Expo.
This program provides our scholars from the 63112, 63113, and 63133 zip codes with a safe space to learn, create, and grow after they leave school for the day.
Freedom Readers strengthens the literacy skills of young people living in impoverished areas by developing a library of highly engaging, developmentally appropriate, and culturally relevant books.
By building a community of unity and faith, we learn together how to put our hope in God and our scholars come to see that they are the true change agents our city desperately needs.
We wake up the realities of life and find ways to rise above. We learn discernment and the ability to make wise choices. We mature emotionally and spiritually.
