“Everything was amazing, and everybody was very positive, knowledgeable, and informative.” - Max, Young Metalsmith Classes
Postponed until further notice. Dates TBD.
Creative Side Jewelry Academy, the top jewelry crafting and metalsmithing school in central Texas, is now offering week-long Summer Camps (ages 10-16).
Students will learn the ancient art of casting, sawing, filing, drilling and finishing skills, and more. This camp provides a safe and creative environment where kids and teens have the opportunity to learn fundamental metalsmithing techniques using copper, brass and silver. The class is led by professional artist and educator Lindsay Sanchez. Under her guidance, students will increase fine motor skills while learning to make sculptural jewelry pieces. Students will create multiple pieces throughout the week and are encouraged to develop their own design skills.
- Wax carving + Lost wax casting
- Alternative Casting Techniques
- Finishing and polishing
The Creative Side family is excited and honored to open up this world of jewelry making and these ancient techniques to your budding artisan. The gratification the students receive after creating their own design from start to finish is irreplaceable. Creative Side will host an end of the week art show to be named by the kids where parents and family will be invited to join us at the end of the day on Friday to meet the instructors, new friends and view their artwork on display.
These kid focused summer camps are open to ages 10-16. Metalsmithing and jewelry crafting takes a certain set of skills, level of maturity and ability to focus plus take instruction that are appropriate for kids. At this time we do not offer programs for children under 10 years.
