SculptureCome and explore the fundamentals of sculpture. Investigate a wealth of materials, techniques, and concepts to create 3D art. We encourage you to develop and master the skills that will give you an effective artistic and personal means of expression.
Begin exploring contemporary sculptural practices thru a variety of materials and sculptural processes. We invite you to delve into traditional and contemporary approaches to processes in just about any medium you can imagine, including clay, metal, wood, silicon, plastic, fabric, and interactive media. If you specialize in sculpture, you receive your own dedicated studio space where you can develop your ideas and your craftsmanship. You’re encouraged to bounce ideas off fellow students and work one-on-one with faculty to make sure your ideas get the attention they need to really develop.
Students have 24-hour access to the sculpture studio and access to fabrication equipment for both metal and wood. These include include a 48” hydraulic shear, metal bending break, sheet roller, MIG welding, plasma cutter, Saw Stop table saw, panel saw, miter saw, drill presses, band saws, and a wide variety of hand tools. There is equipment for mixed-media construction, including sewing machines and digital projectors. We promote a wide variety of materials and techniques to create your own visual narrative, including the use of scanner technology to explore historical artifacts and develop three-dimensional models printed on a Makerbot.
Of course, you’ll be trained in the proper safety procedures for this equipment.
