Jewelry & Metal

Jewelry & Metal

The Art League School’s jewelry and metal program offers instruction in a wide variety of techniques and materials for creating art jewelry. Traditional metalworking, soldering, wax model making, enameling, design, and stone setting are covered along with the use of more contemporary materials to make wearable works of art! We have a fun, wide range of classes and workshops for every creative jeweler, whether an aspiring beginner or already skilled. Courses are offered year-round, during the week, weekend, day and evening at our jewelry classroom at our Madison Annex in Old Town Alexandria, VA.
