The Jewelry / Metal Arts Program at California College of the Arts is one of the oldest and most recognized in the field. It evolved from a single course offered in 1912.

The program builds on a foundation of traditional and contemporary metalsmithing practices to engage students and challenge them to discover their artistic voice.

Yearlong Series of Jewelry / Metal Arts Events

We are pleased to announce Reflection: 100, a yearlong series of events, exhibitions, and lectures, to celebrate the many accomplishments in our first 100 years. In January 2013 the representative work of Jewelry / Metal Arts faculty and alumni spanning the past 10 decades will be on exhibit in the Oliver Art Center (in the Tacoah Bruce Gallery on the Oakland campus).

At the exhibition opening reception, Jack da Silva will present a historical overview of CCA's Jewelry / Metal Arts Program beginning at 7 p.m.

Events will continue throughout the year and conclude in the fall of 2013, with an open house, exhibitions, and a lecture by CCA alumnus Mike Holmes (co-owner of Velvet da Vinci).
