StatementThe Jewelry major was established in 2004. Alongside Glass art, ceramic art it belongs to the department of Ceramic and Handcrafts of Public Art college of China Academy of Art. We offer students four years of bachelor program and three years of master. We consider two main methodologies as our teaching guide by respecting traditional Chinese culture as well as to research on a new form of contemporary Chinese jewelry. There are various labs of sculpture, glass, ceramics, lacquer that provides sufficient support on materials design and handcrafts training to the jewelry studio. Through a rigorous program, students learn to think individually, master the basic design method and diverse techniques to create a complete piece of work. In addition, they will develop an understanding to meet the traditional Chinese handcrafts and contemporary jewelry.
The China Academy of Art was founded by the renowned educator Mr. Cai Yuanpei in 1928 promoting fine arts education to replace religion in the then war-torn China. Thus, fine arts has been put to the height of religion in this institution for almost eight decades. The academy has fostered many renowned artists who have became major artistic forces in the country.
The Academy has the most complete range of degree offerings and programs of study in fine arts in China. There are eight schools under its jurisdiction offering Ph.D., master’s and bachelor’s degrees in fine arts, design, architecture, multi-media and film.
The Academy encourages diversity in thinking、art exploration and research. It takes as its motto “diversity in harmony” and fosters an context for innovation. Foreign students can take short-term or long-term courses in Chinese art, language and culture in the Institute of International Education.
