A Fuego Leader in the Welding Department, Maritza was initially afraid of using the welding equipment alone. But with support from her mentor, Maritza completed a complex, multidisciplinary bust of Frida Kahlo. She will return as a second year Fuego Leader this summer, and in the fall will attend Mills College on a full scholarship. ART STUDENTS DO BETTER Research shows that art students score higher on standardized tests, are less likely to be suspended, and feel more optimistic about attending college. Each year, hundreds of Bay Area youth explore their creativity in our studios, deepening their understanding of STEM concepts, while creating their own unique works of art.

35 TheCrucible.org 510.444.0919 | All youth must have a completed parental consent form and a completed medical authorization form on file before the first day of class. These forms must be submitted for every quarter at The Crucible. Youth cannot participate without these forms on file. No exceptions. Youth attending all day classes should bring a sack lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Weapon making not allowed in youth classes. YOUTH CLASSES The Crucible offers a unique and fun learning experience for youth between ages 8 and 18. Youth classes explore blacksmithing, welding, woodworking, glass blowing, ceramics, and other arts. Students can apply what they’ve learned here — creative problem solving, scientific principles, and teamwork — at school and beyond.

HANDS-ON CREATIVITY At The Crucible, we learn by doing. Classes can involve exploring geometry by welding a customized bike frame, blowing glass vessels after learning about heat application, or soldering components to build a battery powered beetle-bot. We have a range of courses available in our weekend programs, after school programs, and youth camps. PUTTING THE “A” IN STEAM Blending creativity and art into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) helps kids enjoy designing and building projects from their own imagination. The Crucible’s non-competitive environment lets students choose their own direction, not just copy what the teachers demonstrate. Kids finish each course with a piece of art to take home.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE Youth classes are geared specifically for ages 8-11, ages 12-18, or ages 14-18. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, The Crucible offers weeklong camps in the Summer and during Spring Break, project- based school and organization workshops, and the popular Bike Fix-A-Thon and Earn-A-Bike programs. Need-based scholarships are available. YOUTH BIKE SHOP Youth Frame Alteration: Art Bike (ages 12-18) Customize your bicycle in this exciting workshop!

It is a process by which a welding machine focuses electricity along a moving metal wire that is fed through a hose to a handheld torch. Student welders manipulate this torch as the electricity melts the wire and creates a weld. You will learn about the fundamentals of MIG welding, such as metallurgy, preparation, joints, technique, and safety. We will also cover plasma torch cutting. The class begins with a basic, technical welding exercise and transitions into a small creative project.
