The Crucible is truly unique with all the industrial art disciplines we have under one roof. During this exciting Open House we will perform demonstrations and exhibits in every area. Instructors, students, guest artists, and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Every Fall we like to show off what we do here with a spectacular art show. We will have pieces from Crucible staff, students, faculty and volunteers showcasing all of the fabulous industrial arts classes we teach here. During the open house we will ask visitors to vote on their favorite top three pieces. Free tuition on a Crucible class will be awarded to the winning artists.
