Crafting-A-Future (CAF) is a funded young artist mentoring program that provides intensive education in craft media to teenage students throughout the St. Louis metro area. The curriculum concentrates on the development of concepts and techniques particular to the field of contemporary craft culminating in a professional artist portfolio.
Students work closely with local artists in Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design’s jewelry/metalsmithing, fiber, clay, wood and tech studios to develop and exhibit a body of work in preparation for post-secondary education. In addition to their studio work, students connect with nationally/internationally known artists as well as their teen peers in the St. Louis area through exhibitions, lectures, and guest artist workshops
