Today’s goldsmiths and jewellery designers need to be fluent in design as a visual language, but to understand the ideas that have shaped current trends in art, design and jewellery. This course, which is presented in 2 components, introduces students to the foundations of design and art history. The Design component introduces students to advanced idea generation and design refinement strategies. The Art History component of the course presents a survey of major movements in Western art, from Impressionism to Dada and Surrealism. Wherever possible, lessons will be integrated with Metal Techniques projects, with exercises designed to help students throughout their creative process by giving them access to visual resources, tools and techniques.
