Crafts Arts II (Metalsmithing)

  • Course Number: ART-UE 1515
  • Hours: 60
  • Units: 4
  • Description: This course engages the sculpture student interested in small metal construction & cross-disciplinary approaches to object making. Noticing that a growing number of contemporary artists are producing work with their hands, using methods & materials traditionally associated with craft, this course will focus on the object materiality & the condition of their construction. We will pay close attention to the psychical & physical processes involved in the handmade object, & explore the intersection where process & product, idea & material, tradition & innovation meld.
