Jewelry + Metals Courses

Advanced Projects: Fashion-Jewelry-Accessories

Course No. MET271/371/471  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Hollern

Fashion has the power to transcend the mundane, to offer new and novel experiences, to transform the wearer, to empower and provoke, and to reflect and record the times in which we live. As artists and designers we live in a culture of unprecedented access to information, new ideas, materials, and technologies. Fashion-Jewelry-Accessories is designed to focus on the changing landscape of art and design, where we will examine history, concepts, design practices, materials and technologies toward fashion jewelry and accessories. Varied materials and techniques from self-directed exploration to advanced studio technologies will supplement the course to challenge conceptual growth, facilitate design, and present new means of fabrication. “Challenges” are presented to afford students the opportunity to conduct research and explore their own directions. Readings, essays, and discussion offer the integrated seminar experience. The course includes visiting artists/ designers, a field trip, presentations, and demonstrations to support individual directions. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
