Prerequisites: All OF THE FOLLOWING: ARTDES 252: Intro to Metals/Jewelry.


In this jewelry and metals course, students learn to apply color and create images on metal. Exploring traditional and alternative techniques, including enameling (fusing powdered glass to metal) and digital fabrication processes, students investigate how color and imagery are used to adorn the body for self-expression. Granted special access to the University of Michigan Museum of Art collection, students also research selected artworks to gain a deeper understanding of how artists have relied on color and imagery to express ideas, and they gain inspiration for their own designs.
