ABOUT CAMP PMC® CERTIFICATION

I'm excited to be one of the national Camp PMC Principal Instructors offering a learning program for those who love metal clay and looking to expand skills and opportunities!  Both online and in-person learning options are available for all courses.


The Camp PMC Certification Program is a personal learning experience designed with separate development paths for metal clay artisans and metal clay instructors. After taking the core Camp PMC Course 101 class, you can choose to advance your metal clay skills through artisan courses, become a PMC instructor, or both.


Artisan courses are specialty courses designed to focus attention on specific metal clay techniques. After completion of Camp PMC Course 101, you can enroll in any artisan course.


Instructor classes include two levels, PMC Instructor and PMC Principal Instructor. PMC instructors are eligible to teach the Camp PMC Course 101 and PMC principal instructors are eligible to teach PMC Instructor Course 201.

Students completing the Camp PMC Course 101 receive an 8% discount on future purchases of PMC clays through Clay Revolution and Rio Grande Jewelry Supply. Students completing PMC Instructor Course 201 receive a 10% discount on future purchases of PMC clays through Clay Revolution and Rio Grande Jewelry Supply. Students also receive a Certificate of Completion issued by Sawtooth School for Visual Art, for each course completed.
