The Crucible inspires creative exploration and expression through welcoming, hands-on arts education and experiences for people of diverse ages and backgrounds. As an innovative hub built around the industrial arts, The Crucible is a catalyst for individual growth and vibrant community connections.
Youth workshops are usually three hours long in which participants create a small project that they take away with them. There are a minimum and maximum number of people that can do a workshop at one time, and some groups do multiple workshops over the course of a day. Below are descriptions of some of our youth workshops.

Clay Sculpture. Age 6 to 11
Students learn exciting techniques in working with clay. Projects in this area can include cups, bowls, trivets, masks or figures. Clay requires a minimum of 4 youth to run a workshop and can take up to 8 students.
