The Crucible ~ Oakland
Where else can a 12-year-old pour molten metal, weld a steel sculpture, or shape glass into a flameworked sculpture? In The Crucible’s art classes for ages 8-18, students age 8-18 get hands-on learning STEM concepts through the industrial arts, experimenting with different media and techniques, and creating unique works of art! With classes in blacksmithing, jewelry, leatherworking, glass, kinetics & electronics, and more, there is something to get every kid excited about art-making. All camps are running with new health and safety policies in place.
