Q. Can you share something about Art Clay Certification-Level 1 & 2
Art Clay Certification has two levels. Level 1 Certification requires you to have some basic experience with metal clay. It is not meant for beginners. An intense course, it normally run over three days.

In Level 1 certification, a number of projects are completed exactly as they are specified in the Art Clay Beginners Book. The focus is on technique, precision and finishing pieces to a consistently high standard. This course allows no design freedom in the projects. A comprehensive toolkit and all the materials needed including findings are included in the course.

Once Level 1 Certification is passed, students can teach beginners Art Clay classes. Level 1 Certification holders are the Art Clay Level 1 Instructors.

Level 2 Certification covers more advanced techniques and runs over four days. A number of pieces have to be completed during the course. Like the Level 1 Certification, the Level 2 projects must be completed exactly as specified in the Art Clay Advanced Book. A list of all the skills and competencies the instructor is looking for has to be adhered to and this has to be completed successfully for the certification to be awarded. Also, three pieces made after the course are to be submitted and evaluated by a panel before being certified.

Once these steps are passed, the holder is qualified to teach beginners, Level 1 and Level 2 Certification classes. Holders of Level 2 Certification become Senior Art Clay Instructors.
