Crafting Our Youth 2010

Our summer teens program was a huge success! We created “Altered Toys”, “Fiberous Food Adornment from Felt”, “Tattoo Embroideries”, and learned the basics of metalsmithing including the completion of a pendant. Each participant had the opportunity to make a sweet Franken-Toy and choose an original design based from our library of art books including vintage flash, mural arts from around the world, and embroideries from the civil war. If you are not familiar with this program here’s the run down: we provide a quality art and craft education for at-risk teens in the community and we work directly with The Boys and Girls Club of Ada County to provide this service free-of-charge to 15 of their teens. In the future we hope to open enrollment of this program to other teens in our community with an interest in the arts. The summer edition of this program ran through August 12th and will commence again in the winter/spring with date TBD. This program includes mentoring with professional artists in the community as well as basic interaction with positive adults that believe in their talents.

We are always seeking funding to help make this program possible, if you would like to help out or know of an opportunity that would aid in providing art and craft supplies for this program please contact us at theidahoschool@gmail.com

This summer The Idaho School of Art & Craft was awarded an in-kind donation from Rio Grande our favorite jewelry making supply company, check them out at http://www.riogrande.com/ THANK YOU RIO!!!!
