Program Details

Program Description

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture curriculum provides a thorough grounding in many different materials and processes and is structured to enhance a student’s ability to solve structural, spatial, formal and conceptual problems. Initially, students concentrate on basic construction techniques and craftsmanship and then explore tools and techniques used in the wood and metal shops. Large-scale works are encouraged and may be exhibited on the grounds of the Creative Arts Center.

The Sculpture program encourages experimental approaches to art-making including mixed media, mold making, installation, community-based and environmental work. Students have the opportunity to participate each year in group metal pours, learning the technical and safety requirements to successfully cast in bronze and aluminum.
