Students enrolled in sculpture courses are introduced to a variety of sculpture experiences. Emphasis is placed on developing sculptural concepts and acquiring the technical knowledge needed to accomplish set goals. Students will be introduced to the history of contemporary sculpture and are expected to gain awareness of and have proficiency in traditional and non-traditional approaches to object making. Our studios include a well equipped woodshop, metal fabrication facilities, and a general purpose lab where students explore a wider array of materials and processes.
Students earning an art degree with emphasis in three-dimensional art will have considerable freedom to make career choices. The faculty derives much satisfaction in helping students with exhibition opportunities, graduate school applications, specialized training and general encouragement.
