The Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology, a division of Paris Junior College, will offer a unique four-day class, Counter Sketching and Rendering. The class will be held from August 17-20, according to Shannon Calloway, TIJT instructor.
In this increasingly electronic world, knowing how to draw freehand is an extraordinary tool for the future jewelry designer, manufacturer or sales associate. Instructor Remy Rotenier’s interactive and motivational class focuses on counter sketching and efficient rendering techniques.
The first half of the class is based on black and white pencil sketches including document studies, metal and gemstones interpretation, shading, perspective and technical drawing.
Also included in the sessions will be Rotenier’s insight into how to understand and interpret the customer’s request so that the final product fulfills their expectations; how to transfer black and white designs to color; and the realistic painted rendition of white and yellow gold, transparent and opaque gems and pearls.
Rotenier will share the rendering techniques that make his drawing famous worldwide.
Upon completion of this class the student will be able to draw profiles of rings without the use of templates; understand the theory of shadows, place realistic facets on gemstones to enhance the sketch; and paint realistic renderings.
Also included in the instruction will be how to draw ellipses for half-round bands, flat bands, concave bands and dome rings.
Each student will be given a custom order assignment as if from a customer. Students will then create at least three separate designs for the class to evaluate.
Interested students are urged to register early for this class.
