Kids + Teens Programing

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.
