Thousands of Bay Area youth, ages 8-17, have attended Crucible classes, camps, and workshops. From metal to wood to glass (and much more) we provide a unique setting for youth to explore their creative voices while absorbing real-life lessons in science, technology, engineering and math.
For young, creative artists, we offer spring and summer camps. These kids activities are fun and educational. Youth explore in classes ranging from blacksmithing, flameworking, welding and jewelry making. These camps are an excellent introduction to our fiery Crucible youth classes! Youth complete projects such as welded sculpture, glass tiles and mosaics, robots and gizmos, glass tube sculpture and more, while they learn basic rules of science, physics and chemistry.
YOUTH WEEKEND CLASSES
Our convenient weekend classes are specially designed for youth and parents with busy schedules. These popular classes allow students to immerse themselves in our unique kids activities, such as glass art and woodcarving with expert instructors.
YOUTH AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES
Our after school classes are an exciting alternative to traditional after school programs. Youth discover their own creativity and learn in exciting classes. What better way to end the school day, than cutting loose with a welded sculpture class or glass flameworking class? The Youth Program offers after school kids activities throughout the school year.
The Crucible has hosted several youth workshops with local schools and organizations. Working in collaboration with local educational programs, these projects have taught youth skills to create a specific project under the instruction of Crucible faculty. Past collaborations include Girls Inc., The Drew School, Athenian School, Cathedral School for Boys, KIPP Bridge Charter School and Cole Middle School. Workshops are project-based opportunities for students to participate in a group project or create individual projects. Workshops have been designed primarily to facilitate team building opportunities as well as individual exploration of the arts.
