Craft Alliance in the Loop: Friday, 30 April 2010

Craft Alliance is pleased to announce the opening of the Crafting-A-Future Student Exhibition from 6 – 8 p.m. on Friday, April 30, in the Charak Gallery. Crafting-A-Future (CAF) is a multi-year mentoring program that provides talented, underserved high school students throughout the St. Louis metro area with in-depth arts education. Ninth through 12th grade students work closely with local artists in Craft Alliance’s jewelry/metalsmithing, fiber, clay, wood and graphics studios to develop a body of work. CAF nurtures students in their pursuit of an art education beyond what is offered in high school programs by exposing them to contemporary craft exhibitions, materials and techniques, and encouraging and supporting them through the college application process. This includes assistance with portfolio development. Last year, Craft Alliance was thrilled to learn that 13 of the 16 graduating students received multiple college scholarships directly linked to their participation in the CAF program.
