Re: [art_education] Complete Metalsmith Video and book - EXCELLENT resource
- Here are some simple ideas to begin with--make handmade jewelry--it can be
from hardware pieces, found objects, wire, mesh, plastic--there are many books
written on non-traditional jewelry.
You can create jewelry from clay.
You can do simple casting--I mean simple-- from pewter
You can use metal tooling
Look at the crafts from Carol Duval--many can become fine art if you upscale
You can teach beading--there are so many cultural references to many of the
beading stitches--you could do multi-media-look at African Masks..
I believe that you should start simple -think of design projects first-that
can buy you some time--perhaps a local jewelry artist could demonstrate and
you watch like crazy.....
You are an art teacher-flexibility is our second name.....creativity of
course, being our first.....
