Sculpture


Whatever their chosen medium, students passionate engagement in art making is key to their success in the sculpture program. The sculpture program offers instruction in working with a wide range of media, including stone, wood, mixed media, glass, fiber, and metal. Students develop familiarity with technical processes including mold- making, foundry, woodworking, and welding, as well as with building processes using various media. In addition to this practical knowledge, students gain an understanding of conceptual and installation issues affecting their chosen medium. To enhance students familiarity with form, the program emphasizes cross-disciplinary study. Students who elect to study figurative sculpture and anatomy, for example, are encouraged to take studio courses in movement. Students interested in kinetic and/or multimedia works explore computer-controlled devices and other new technologies. Advanced seminars and “theme classes” explore issues common to all three-dimensional arts, such as narrative, functionality in art and design, mixed media, installation, public art, and art as object and image.
