SOULSVILLE METALS COLLABORATIVE & CU IN SUMMER
SOULSVILLE METALS COLLABORATIVE
The Soulsville Metals Collaborative (SMC) is a program designed for high school students. The students learn basic metalworking techniques including sawing, texturing, enameling, forming and pewter casting. In addition to the metalworking skills, participants also develop math, business, and marketing skills. The students makes work to be sold during a showcase and also in the Metal Museum store. After an initial training period, SMC participants are eligible to be paid an hourly wage while they are making inventory to be sold. Duties of a volunteer would include monitoring students, keeping them focused, providing feedback and possibly helping set up with the showcase.
CU IN SUMMER
The Cu in Summer is a six week summer program that is project based. Each week a new metalworking technique is taught and art and design elements and principles are discussed. A project is expected to be completed each week and the last week is spent installing the work into a gallery at the museum. The students have the option to sell the work and keep the money or keep the projects.
*Interviews and background checks are required for the ongoing youth program volunteers.
