Jewelry and Metal Arts
The programs emphasize the development of individual artistic expression while focusing on conceptual and technical skills necessary for professional achievement. Students learn traditional and contemporary metalworking techniques including: metal fabrication, small and large scale metal casting, metal forming, enameling, anodizing, electroforming, lathe and CNC work, etching, patination, polishing, powder coating, and hydraulic forming. Students are challenged with three essential creative elements – ideation, material knowledge, and technical exploration.
Our BFA students have their own studio workspace which includes 8 individual bench areas, communal tools, a flex shaft workstation, and a washbasin style sink.
