The ConVal Summer Academy offers a unique course — Jewelry Making and Metalsmithing. With the help of art teacher Karry Mitschmyer, who demonstrates different techniques, students create rings, pendants, earrings, and more.
A sketchbook practice is utilized to plan and modify work as the class progresses. Functional design is the foundation for this class and students develop their ideas using mixed materials, from metal to glass and fiber.
The course fulfills the 1/2 credit ConVal High School graduation requirement for Art.
