Described as "enormously beneficial" by a teacher from St. Louis’s Central Visual and Performing Arts High School, ArtSmarts
is a unique educational arts program which fills a void in urban schools with under-funded art departments.
Students visit Craft Alliance studios during field trips designed to introduce them to contemporary craft in our studios and exhibitions. Led by professional artists, students learn the basic techniques and history involved in flame worked glass, ceramics, metalsmithing and fiber arts. In addition to the hands-on studio activity, students participate in docent lectures in our galleries.
