As a Crucible Member, You

Receive 10% off class tuition

We want our members in the studio getting creative and making work you will cherish for the rest of your life. That’s why all Crucible members get 10% off class tuition no matter what.

Get early access to all classes

In order to keep our classes as safe as possible, we have reduced sizes of all youth and adult classes to six or less students. Your membership will give you first dibs on all upcoming classes and ensure you have the best shot at signing up.

Free Tours and Member Receptions

This Fall, The Crucible will relaunch our beloved tour program. See our 56,000-square-foot facility in action, get the inside scoop on our 20+-year history, and connect with other like-minded creatives! Public access will resume in 2023 for a small fee, but free tours will remain a member perk. Following each tour, we’ll host a small member reception with light refreshments.

Access Studio Labs

Crucible members are eligible to participate in our Studio Labs, where you can use our studio space, tools, and equipment to work on your own projects under the supervision of a Crucible instructor.

Get Exclusive Discounts on Apparel and Merchandise

Crucible members get exclusive discounts on apparel and merchandise, so that they can show off their Crucible pride in and outside the studio!

And more!

What Our Members Have To Say

We’re living in a culture of consumerism, and a lot of people are not fulfilled by that. The Crucible is a place you can learn to create instead of just consume.
LR Altman
I appreciate that I can talk to people about art here. You can certainly be an artist and not talk to people and be stuck in your studio, but at a certain point you think, ‘What am I doing here?
Karl Hauser
For people like me who don’t know we have a latent creativity, finding the medium to express myself started giving me purpose and helping me work on myself.
