Craft Alliance is looking for a fibers/textiles artists, printmakers and woodworkers interested in mentoring students for Crafting-A-Future, a mentoring program that provides education in craft media to 30 young artists, ages 13-19, throughout the St. Louis metro area.

Crafting-A-Future operates a total of 30 weeks (minus holidays/breaks) utilizing the studios at Craft Alliance. Young artists spend 10 weeks in one studio, and then have the opportunity to rotate to up to two other studios with 10-week spans before a  group exhibition in June 2023.

Each studio is taught by two professional/working artists that create a syllabus and schedule together. Classes run from 12-5 pm on Saturdays, from Sept. 17, 2022-May 27, 2023. To apply, please send a resume and/or portfolio or website to Lowell Daniels, Community Programs Manager, at
