Students in the Sculpture program learn to engage the world through three-dimensional form in a range of traditional and contemporary processes preparing them for careers such as professional artists, working in custom fabrication, production casting, product design, special effects for film, curatorial practice, public arts management, education or for continued education in graduate school.
The Sculpture curriculum emphasizes an understanding of contemporary developments in visual art and communication with physical form and space by utilizing the most relevant materials and techniques. To facilitate this approach, the Sculpture program introduces students to an extreme breadth of hands-on processes including non-metal casting, foundry casting in bronze and aluminum, woodworking, metal fabrication, carving, 3D printing and digital fabrication, soft sculpture and handweaving, mixed media assemblage, installation, and more.
Located in the newly constructed Center for Visual Arts the Sculpture Suite includes over 7,000 square feet of specialized shop and classroom facilities including a fully outfitted woodshop, 3D printing room, indoor foundry for ceramic shell investment casting, metal fabrication equipment, wax-working room, patina room, spray booth, upper and lower division classrooms, a secure outdoor work patio, and a plaster room shared with the Ceramics program.
