Classes at SPC

I am a member of the LGMS... and I am a professor of art at South Plains College where I teach metalsmithing and jewelry design.

This spring our class is on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30-1.

Tuition would run about $460 plus fees, books and supplies for someone who lives in Lubbock. Parking at SPC is free, but must register your vehicle.

ARTS2341: Art Metals . Students work in copper, nickel, brass, bronze and silver; and learn how to use a jeweler's saw and the basics of sanding, filing, finishing, light forming, textures techniques such as embossing with roller print, hammer and stamping and etching, and an introduction to patinas.  Students learn how to make a bezel cup and cab setting. Three soldering techniques are covered: butt solder, sweat solder and 90 degree solder. We also work wax for lost wax casting. Small classes, no more than 14 students. It is an intro class but all skill levels are welcome. The class is taught in a fully furnished intro studio and a basic tool kit is provided.

I am the instructor and I have an MFA in Studio/metals and 20 years of teaching experience.
