March 17, 2009 - PRLog -- Enter our vast West Oakland studio through the roll-up door behind the red caboose, and you’ll find a vibrant community of artists, craftspeople, tinkers, do-it-yourselfers, innovators, and explorers of all ages.

Browse through an eclectic art show featuring works by students and faculty of The Crucible executed in metal, wood, light, textiles, ceramics, glass and more; you can even vote for your favorite pieces in the “People’s Choice” competition.  Check out demonstrations of many of the skills taught at The Crucible, like glassworking, bronze casting, kinetics, ceramics, blacksmithing, plus a special presentation by fire performance students.

The Open House is a unique opportunity to learn about classes, and see firsthand how anyone can make art of their own. Parents and youngsters can take a special tour and chat with student docents about their experiences in youth classes and summer camps.  The event will also showcase innovative art bikes created in the wildly popular Youth Hyphy Bike class, just one of the exciting new classes offered this summer and other sculptural art by young Crucible® students.

Join us in celebrating Earth Day and get tips on green and environmental living strategies and resources to keep Mother Earth healthy.    A variety of tasty food and drink from local food vendors is available so you can make it a full day.   It’s all FREE and family friendly!
