Jewellery/Metalsmithing: Fabrication 2
0.50 Credit(s)
This required course is a continuation of the jewellery portion of the MAD studio rotation in the fall semester. The course leads students into more complex technical and skill-building, concept-based projects. Students will submit drawings and models of all projects and produce an artist's statement-of-purpose for class critiques. Independent technical research is encouraged and is included as a building block and a significant element of the major project of the term. The course will be delivered using illustrated lectures, including video presentations of current work from Canada and abroad, demonstrations, in-class discussions and one-on-one (individual) and group critiques. Projects are designed to implement the students' new skills and challenge their creativity and concept development. Students will work in teams to develop metal alloys and will share the results of their collective labour.
Notes: There is a consumables fee attached to this course.
Conditions: Requires a minimum grade of 60% to advance to further Material Art & Design studio courses.
