Jewellery/Metalsmithing: Composition
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: MAAD 2B14 Intro to Jewellery/Metalsmithing: Fabrication OR GDES 3B34 Jewellery Design 1: An Introduction
The course will introduce the studio jeweller to a painterly palette through the introduction of colour, texture, lamination, alloying and surface enrichment. This very technical course is designed to explore conceptual, abstract and narrative expression in human adornment. Sampling of techniques and research notes will be incorporated into a presentation that each student will keep for future reference. Drawing, modeling and writing skills are essential to each project and will be evaluated, as will the working methods and attitudes employed in the production of the final project. The course will be delivered using lectures, demonstrations, in-class discussions and one-on-one (individual) critiques. Students will be exposed to professionals through in-class workshops and through field trips.
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.
