Intro
Applicants should be able to speak to a diversity of approaches to jewellery and metals including those intersecting with contemporary art, function, craft, and design. Candidates with a strong practice in Metalsmithing are encouraged to apply.

Home to ACAD’s four craft programs—Ceramics, Fibre, Glass, and Jewellery + Metals—as well as the Media Arts program, SCEM also offers minors in Object Design + Fabrication and Animation.
