Art Clay Certification Level 2
Art Clay World approved senior instructor Julia Rai teaches this three day advanced metal clay skills Art Clay Certification Level 2.

Holders of the Art Clay Diploma at Level 2 are permitted to run introductory Art Clay classes and get a 20% discount on Art Clay products from the authorised distributors.
The updated Art Clay Diploma replaced the previous Art Clay Certification in January 2013. At Level 2 students complete four complex projects during the four day course and must meet the required standards. You must have attended and passed the Art Clay Diploma Level 1 before attending this course. If you attained the Level 1 with another instructor, you should bring your Certificate with you.
The projects you will complete are:-

• Using glass with metal clay
• Bezel setting natural stones

On successful completion of this Level, you will be eligible to progress to the Art Clay Higher Diploma. This level has no classes; you are required to design and make three pieces to set criteria without guidance from a teacher. You will need to wait six months from the date of your Level 1 class before submitting your pieces for the Higher Diploma.
The Higher Diploma holder gets 30% discount on Art Clay products and can teach Level 1 and 2 Diploma classes until the new Teacher’s Certification is in operation – expected to be July 2013. Once running, the Teacher’s Training Course will be a prerequisite for teaching the Diploma classes.
