Full Course Description

During this intensive travel course, students will explore fine arts and contemporary jewelry design in Germany. We will visit Munich, Berlin, and Leipzig, touring galleries and museums, to look at jewelry and painting, and seeking ways in which the mediums intersect. We will also visit artist studios and jewelers' workshops, as well as students at a German art school. These visits will provide the opportunity for dialogue about art, insight to professional practices, and investigation into what makes what makes the rich artistic culture of Germany possible. The first two weeks of this course will be at RISD, where you will begin research into the arts of Germany and develop individual projects. During this time, we will also be initiating conversation with students in the Jewelry Department at the Fine Arts Academy of Munich; a Masters level department, known for its innovative ideas about art jewelry. You will be creating a small piece or body of work to bring to the Academy. During the time abroad, you will be required to keep a sketchbook/portfolio in conjunction with an individual project. You will be collecting sketches, notes, images, ideas, and drawings for review and display at the conclusion of the semester. You will also be regularly posting your experiences on a group blog
