Systemic and Collective Impact through Fine Arts Education

The Des Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative is dedicated to enhancing the quality, influence, attitudes, and accessibility of fine arts by connecting educators, artists, and performers with St Louis students. Special attention is given to underserved populations. The Collaborative is currently made up of 25 St. Louis area arts agencies and 15 St. Louis area school districts.

Community programs include educational fine arts outreach programs and concerts, student concerts, clinics, and masterclasses.
