History
Founded in 1877, Rhode Island School of Design (or “RIZ-dee” for the acronym RISD) is one of the oldest and best-known colleges of art and design in the U.S. Each year approximately 2,300 students from around the world pursue a creative, studio-based education at RISD, which offers rigorous bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in 19 architecture, design, fine arts and art education majors. The college is located in Providence, Rhode Island, which offers its own vibrant art scene and is conveniently located between two other major cultural centers: Boston and New York.

Jewelry + Metalsmithing's department
Spanning the gamut from traditional goldsmithing to experimental processes and materials, Jewelry + Metalsmithing offers a tight-knit community of students and faculty fully engaged with the discipline. Critical analysis and an open exchange of ideas support each individual’s exploration of the relationship of jewelry to the body.

In 2003 Robin Quigley was appointed department head; and in 2004 Tracy Steepy joined the faculty as graduate program coordinator. With two full-time faculty members, six to eight adjunct instructors and visiting artists all in-house at any one time, the RISD jewelry + metalsmithing program is extraordinary among American colleges.

The Department is further distinguished by the RISD community that extends beyond our studios and offers students a uniquely well rounded artistic experience. Jewelry + metalsmithing students have access to exceptional resources including the world-class RISD Museum of Art collection, our magnificent contemporary library of art and design, a Nature Lab of specimens from the natural world, and ongoing collaboration with our renowned neighbor Brown University. RISD’s high standards of excellence in 19 major disciplines, as well as the caliber of students, faculty, facilities and resources generate a fertile setting for creative practice.

General Information
The RISD Jewelry + Metalsmithing Department offers a four-year undergraduate program (BFA) and a two-year graduate program (MFA) that allow for a wide range of approaches, from the goldsmith’s tradition to contemporary modes of experimentation. The department’s size and high ratio of faculty to students promote individual attention, free exchange of information and guided support. Department facilities support advanced and specialized work. Students have access to machine, forming and computer rooms as well as individual bench space, torch and ventilation. A full-time technician maintains the facilities to ensure a safe, efficient working environment. The program also offers highly technical elective classes in electroforming and CAD-CAM. Between fall and spring terms, the unique structure of Wintersession allows students to work intensively for six weeks with international visiting faculty or to explore interdisciplinary options.

Upon graduation students have gained critical and technical skills required to produce a body of work, exhibition, a digital portfolio and website, providing the network and confidence to enter the professional arena of their choice, from designer to fine artist.

Courses

Undergraduate program
The undergraduate program in J+M offers progressive levels of design complexity and technical challenges as students seek unique design solutions and learn to execute their ideas with skill and ingenuity. Professors help students to hone critical thinking and making skills through challenging assignments, selected readings, lively group discussions and by encouraging unconventional approaches that allow for expressive exploration.

Approximately 35 undergraduate students working with all types of materials and techniques share studio spaces and specialized equipment in RISD's Metcalf Building. Faculty members are readily available to provide focused, individual attention both in class and as students work on their own in the studio. The dozen grad students in the department enrich the discourse, contributing to a ready exchange of ideas.

Throughout the program, students benefit from recurring contact with the professional world. Visiting artists from across the US, Europe and beyond offer valuable exposure to current critical analysis and artistic practices developing in the field. They also provide refreshing insight and international perspectives during critiques and individual studio visits. In addition, the department assists students in finding rewarding professional internships at selected companies or studios.

Graduate program

Post-baccalaureate | 1-year program
J+M also offers a unique course of study: a custom-designed, year-long program for students interested in building upon their undergraduate experience. Based on one-on-one work with a designated faculty member, the program helps students combine conceptual thinking and technical abilities into a well-rounded studio practice tailored to individual interests.

MFA | 2-year program
RISD’s graduate program in Jewelry + Metalsmithing cultivates individual excellence by emphasizing rigorous research, material experimentation and creative practice. Graduate students produce meaningful work by being encouraged to question and investigate the forces that motivate them and to engage in critical discourse with the creative community within and beyond the department.
