What is the certification process for Art Clay Silver and what advantages does it give me?
Level One Certification - In order to become a certified instructor, you must successfully complete the Level One
Certification course. This course is designed to provide an in-depth knowledge of Art Clay. The curriculum consists of
nine different projects taught over 24 hours of instruction (typically three eight hour days), and covers a variety of
techniques. Some of the techniques include use of organic forms, creating flat and round-shank rings, addition and
firing of gemstones and glass, creating a mirror finish, and much more. This course provides general and technical
information, as well as some helpful teaching guidelines.
Senior Level Certification - The Senior Certification course is designed to provide advanced techniques as well as a
creative challenge for the individuals who have completed Level One Certification. There are a total of seven projects
taught over 32 hours (typically four eight hour days). This course teaches students to incorporate gold foil, brass, and
fine silver bezel wire. It also introduces the use of three-dimensional design, with emphasis on detail and fine
finishing. Successful completion of this course entitles you to apply for Senior Instructor Status. Art Clay World, USA,
