What can I expect from my engraving arts classes?

You can expect to learn traditional techniques for hand engraving in a way that helps you create a personal style for your art.

With each project, expect to push your new skills to the next level. Students are encouraged to look for innovative and new ways to express metal engraving, so projects often go beyond the boundaries of traditional applications.

What is the goal of this program?

These courses in hand engraving look to expand the definition of hand engraving. Exploration into hand fabrication, conceptual development, and hybrid techniques broaden the ability of each student as he or she learns new engraving skills.

Students are motivated to research and innovate, finding useful applications in similar studies such as ceramics, printmaking, sculpting, metalwork, and painting.

What type of classes will I take?

As an art major with a concentration in engraving, courses include art history, basic to advanced drawing and design, and introductory studio classes. Engraving arts range from beginner to advanced studio classes, with a course focused solely on project creation and completion.
