FIRED UP! YOUTH CAMPS
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.

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
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.
