I was reading all of the posts in the thread “An aspiring jewelry
designer with a dilemma” and even added my 2 cent’s worth of
comments. Now maybe because I am looking at another birthday
tomorrow and I am feeling old, or maybe because I can’t work anymore
because of my health, maybe both; but I am really feeling like I
would like to get a degree in Jewelry and Art Metal. You see, I never
graduated ever. Dropped out of high school and got a GED in the Army.
Pretty much was pushed out of school here at the UW Madison because
of a difference in the concept of what “Art” is about. I would like
to graduate just once. Silly I know at 49 but still a dream.
So the question is, who has a program that I can participate in
while at home?I have a full shop in my basement so I can complete
almost any assignment. I also probably have one of the best
libraries for jewelry, artistic decoration and historical jewelry
design in the state, (I like collecting jewelry books…)
Any suggestion where I might apply on a limited budget?
