As a Jewelry + Metals student at the Cleveland Institute of Art, you will develop a thorough understanding of your creative process and contemporary practices that will shape you as an artist and designer. Our coursework begins with studying the fundamental techniques and materials in jewelry design, metalwork, functional objects, and sculpture.
After the basics, you will learn about a full range of concepts, materials, and technologies:
And you will learn about the history of the field, contemporary attitudes across art and design, jewelry, wearables, objects, and the artists and designers of our time. To grow as an artist, you will continually develop skills, increase your knowledge, and broaden your experiences. As a Jewelry + Metals major you will accomplish these goals through studio projects and research, presentations, exhibitions, and field trips. Each year, you will produce and submit work for exhibition and competition including the juried Student Independent Exhibition, held in the Institute’s Reinberger Galleries, as well as the Spring Show.
