BJC After School Program
Sign up for BJC After School Program
Our BJC After School program takes place in Oct – Dec of 2018. Programs are available for kids and teens ages 10-14. All students will work with traditional and contemporary jewelry making techniques to create finished pieces of wearable art and jewelry.
The mission of the Baltimore Jewelry Center is to engage the greater Baltimore community with the practice of metalsmithing and art jewelry. With our after school programs we create an environment for kids and teens to explore a new form of making. Students will learn about new materials and gain a variety of skills as they work with our instructors to create their own handmade object.
