At The Crucible, classes are designed for beginners as well as experienced artists and tradespeople. The Crucible’s educational programs serve over 8,500 people each year in over 175 classes and workshops. Our hands-on classes average one instructor for every six students, guaranteeing that each student receives personal attention.
The Crucible offers full and partial scholarships for youth and adults who would otherwise not be able to participate in classes or camps. We prioritize scholarship awards to low-income households, youth and adults living and/or attending school in West Oakland or the East Bay, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) youth and families.
