Founding AJDC member Alan Revere opened the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco nearly 40 years ago. Now he is looking towards the next chapter, retirement and he is selling the school.
After nearly 40 years, Alan Revere has decided to retire from teaching and directing the school that he founded in San Francisco. The Revere Academy is currently for sale. Classes will continue as scheduled through 2017.
“My goal has always been to share my love of goldsmithing and bring traditional jewelry techniques across the millennium,” says Revere, who is looking forward to quieter days roaming the west in his VW camper. “With thousands of graduates creating jewelry around the globe, I feel satisfied that my efforts have been successful. Now, we are looking for the right person to purchase The Revere Academy and lead it into the future.”
Regarding the sale of the school, Revere believes it’s a unique opportunity for someone to own an iconic, thriving fixture in the jewelry world and carry its traditions of excellence into the future. The school offers 100 classes in traditional and contemporary jewelry making skills each year. The Revere Academy offers certificates for individual classes, such as fabrication, repair, design, and gemology and diplomas for longer programs, all of which are authorized by The State of California, Department of Education, Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.
Revere established The Revere Academy in San Francisco in 1979, bringing European-style jewelry training to the Bay Area. Since then the school has trained more than 10,000 students. Many graduates are working as bench jewelers and designers around the globe, sitting at benches every day using the skills they learned at the Revere Academy.
