Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design has been providing arts education and craft experiences to the St. Louis Community for over 55 years. With our professional teaching artists and our fully stocked studio classrooms, Staenberg Summer Camps provide creative discovery through clay, metal, glass, fiber, drawing, painting, and more. Camps are designed to engage youth in learning fun and new techniques such as how to throw a bowl on a potter's wheel, how to sculpt the eyes of an animal, or how to draw a comic strip of their very own!
In conjunction with Summer Camps, Craft Alliance offers Teen Internships. Teen Interns can apply to assist our summer camp faculty in the studio of their interest! In exchange for volunteering, Teen Interns can enroll in one or two of the five Teen Studio sessions offered.
