Design and create jewelry and small sculpture works under the masterful eye of Ryan Bartel. You will learn the basics of metal working -- piercing, forming, forging and soldering -- while working with brass, bronze, silver and nickel. Working with a combination of metals and techniques will open you to a better understanding of the versatility of this media for creation of fine art objects, as well as your own wearable jewelry designs. Lab Fee: $25
June 21-26, 2015
For campers entering grades 8-12+
Instructor: Ryan Bartel
Ryan Bartel is a recent UW-Green Bay graduate and is currently a Kindergarten teacher. He has a double major in Art and Education from UW-Green Bay. Although he dabbled in many different types of media, his main focus during his time there was metals and jewelry. Ryan is well versed in metalworking techniques and is a very technical metals artist. The bulk of his work thus far has dealt with technical pieces that involve mechanisms and bio-mechanical parts. His work details the way people percieve insects and how insects can be transformed into beautiful and symmetrical pices of wearable artwork.
