Jewellery/Metalsmithing: Fabrication 2
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: MAAD 2B14 Intro to Jewellery/Metalsmithing: Fabrication or GDES 3B34 Jewellery Design 1: An Introduction
This course leads students into more complex technical and skill-building, concept-based projects in jewellery. 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: Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
Conditions: Students must achieve a minimum grade of 60% in at least one of their core studio courses each semester to advance to further Material Art & Design studio courses.
