Basic enameling techniques for beginners are taught every term. Advanced students may work on their own projects with teacher’s instruction in specialized techniques including cloisonné and the etching techniques of bassetaille and champlevé. There is a $30 lab fee for all enameling classes; this covers the cost of studio consumables and enamels, not metal.
The Art League Jewelry and Metal program covers various aspects of designing and creating art jewelry and small metal objects. Each class is suited for beginners, unless noted. The classroom is equipped with an extensive assortment of tools and machines. Personal tools and supplies are discussed during the first class. Basic jewelry tool kits may be rented or purchased for home use for the duration of any jewelry class.
Covid Policy for Students in this Class
The Art League will no longer require masks in our classrooms, store, gallery, or offices. However, we ask that our students, faculty, and staff use caution and thoughtfulness when they are close to others for prolonged periods. For example, students using shared equipment in the classroom studios are strongly encouraged to wear masks for their safety, and the consideration of those around them, when in tight proximity to others.Masks are also recommended if your home community risk level is high (Alexandria is currently at medium risk), or you’ve been told by a health professional to wear a mask based on your personal risk factors.
The Art League reserves the right to reinstate mandatory masks, and additional covid safety policies should we feel local conditions warrant such action.
