The Art of Engraving
This hands-on course teaches artists (and those interested in this art form) how medals and coins are traditionally created. Instructed by Laura Stocklin, metalsmith and printmaker, students explore the ancient art of hand die-engraving together with more modern processes currently used to create coins and medals.
Six successful candidates will receive a scholarship to attend the Art of Engraving at the ANA’s Summer Seminar, June 18-23, 2016. The scholarship includes tuition, lodging and meals for one week and up to $400 reimbursement for transportation costs. Students who successfully complete the first year will be invited back for the second year (June 2017) to continue their study of this fascinating art form (and will receive a second scholarship, as outlined above, to allow participation in 2017).
