The first, Counter Sketching Jewelry, teaches how to make black and white custom design sketches on paper in front of a client. The second, Color Rendering of Jewelry, instructs how to render jewelry designs into finished paintings that can be presented to customers. His most recent course, Advanced Jewelry Design, includes more than 7 hours of instruction in black and white design and drawing skills.  These three courses encapsulate classes that Rotenier has taught at jewelry and design schools for years, and incorporate skills he has learned in 30 years as a professional designer.

Testimonials

  • ". . . Not only is [Rémy] an extremely skilled artist, but he is a very good teacher. His classes are well prepared, his materials very helpful, and his attitude is friendly and caring.

    ". . . Everyone in the class walked away with a vastly improved skill level, no matter what level they came in with. I believe that anyone who takes a class with Rémy will be making a valuable investment in their future career as a jeweler, metal smith or designer. At the end of his workshop they will be able to sell their work just by drawing it!"

  • “I had no compasses, no rulers, no vector based software---but there I was designing, as part of a fantastic counter-sketching workshop with Rémy Rotenier. . . [He] had us drawing without tools or templates. And though it took me a few hours to get past the initial discomfort, I soon was scribbling and drawing and having fun.

    “Ditching my usual tools helped me to explore new facets of creativity. . . I am having fun getting lost in the creative process, without the distraction of my tools. And getting lost on purpose takes me to the place where magic happens.”

  • "I had the pleasure of working with Rémy Rotenier in which some of our time was dedicated to his teachings of jewelry rendering. I have been designing for many years but will be forever thankful for the techniques he showed me.

    "It has opened up a new way for me to look at and improve my own work by guiding me to a way to see things differently than what I was able to easily do on my own."
