The Kids & Art Foundation workshops are only for our families touched by cancer.
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.
