This class will show students the possibilities of handcrafting your own metal jewelry while exploring the idea of creating a small business. Campers will sketch ideas in their own sketchbooks (provided), practice using tools and handling metal before creating several pieces of copper jewelry, including a pendant, ring and earrings. There will be a trip to a retail art gallery where students will be introduced to all kinds of local creations and how they are displayed. There may even be a stop at the local ice cream parlor. On the last day of camp, we’ll set up our own jewelry store displaying students handcrafted pieces, displays, and business names for parents and visitors.
Ages: 8-14 (7 with instructor's approval, email camp director Ann Kaiyala at email@example.com for more information)
