There’s no shortage of projects for students at Catapult Creative House. But unlike course work where effort gets graded, here students are business owners in charge of their own destiny. The creative arts and industries incubator gives students a space to bring their creativity and entrepreneurship together in a business model from product development to marketing, management, accounting and more. More than 30 students are currently vendors at Catapult selling creations ranging from artwork to jewelry to clothing and coffee. The official dedication was held Homecoming weekend in a 13,000-plus-square-foot renovated building in Cape Girardeau’s historic district. In addition to a student studio, the facility provides a retail shop, coffee bar, art gallery, letterpress, 3D printing area, photo and paint shops, an art classroom and conference space, all operated by students with faculty collaboration.
