5 stars! Taking jewelry classes with Denise Elizabeth is a unique experience. You learn about design, drawing, perspective, planning and problem solving, as well as the basic techniques of metalsmith. I started classes with Denise two years ago and it has been one of the most enriching experiences. Denise is an integral teacher with clear mastery of the techniques for the development of her students' projects, motivating us to be more daring with each piece. - Elena Delfino
The basic course of jewelry design and metalsmith covers a complete training of sawing, filing, textures, welding, and finishing methods. In this 12-hour course two projects are completed: a pendant for a necklace and a ring while emphasizing the theory and practice of design to stimulate creativity. In later courses advanced techniques are taught.
The basic course of creative painting covers a training of the basic techniques of abstract painting and ways of giving textures by means of splattering, dragging, media application and termination methods.
