ART259 :  Jewelrymaking/Metalsmithing III

Third-term students build on the skills acquired in the two preceding terms. Students are allowed more latitude in project selections, which incorporate several required advanced metalsmithing techniques. Students implement strategies in transferring applied design elements, manipulating tools and fabricating materials. This experience helps develop an insight on the process in order to successfully complete select areas of study. Students discuss and critique each other's work and discuss basic aesthetics of art metal design and construction, thus expanding the student's perception of themselves within a historical as well as contemporary context. In addition, students considering a career in the jewelry and metalsmithing trades receive practical guidelines for pursuing their profession. ART257, ART258 and ART259 are sequential.
