There is one section of Metals & Mixed Media. It is a full year class open to all 9th – 12th grade students.
We work with copper, brass and nickel silver. Students do their own designing, sawing, filing and buffing, and solder using an acetylene torch. We explore the qualities of good design and how it applies to wearable and decorative work.
Students also work with mixed-media processes such as image transfer, printmaking and decorative paper techniques. Additional materials include working with clay, plaster and more. More student metals work can be found at karenkiick.com in the HS gallery. You can also follow along with our progress on the HTHS Art pinterest board! Each student has their own Pinterest Portfolio board!
