As a Jewelry + Metals student at the Cleveland Institute of Art, you will develop a thorough understanding of traditional and contemporary metalsmithing processes that will aid you in your journey to become an artist of decorative and wearable art. Our Jewelry and Metals coursework begins with studying the fundamental techniques and materials in jewelry design and small-scale sculpture.
After learning the basics, you will utilize more advanced technologies, such as:
And you will analyze the history of the field, contemporary attitudes towards wearables and cultural objects, and significant artists and their works. To grow as an artist, you will need to continually develop skills, improve your knowledge, and broaden your experiences. As a Jewelry and Metals major, you will accomplish all of these goals through studio and research assignments, presentations, exhibitions, and field trips. Each year, you also will produce and submit work to the juried Student Independent Exhibition, a display of student work held in the Institute’s Reinberger Galleries, as well as our Spring Show.
