Students pursuing the B.F.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in Sculpture complete a final portfolio of original, cohesive work. As you graduate, you will have been empowered to develop a personal voice, a professional and creative practice, self-discipline, and cultural awareness.
As a Sculpture major, you'll be challenged conceptually and technically, and much of your time will be spent creating original works. However, the curriculum also exposes you to all aspects of 3-D art and the different media in which to work, including computer-based design for digital fabrication.
In the studio, students gain technical skills including woodworking, welding, metal fabrication, mold-making, casting, digital fabrication, public art proposals and installation practice. We encourage and direct the development of the individual student through a process of creative inquiry, conceptualization, realization and critique. Students may choose to focus on object-making, performance, installation, video or public art.
Education – students are prepared to enter higher education programs such as a graduate sculpture or studio art program. Graduates may instruct private lessons or public workshops and classes at local arts organizations, community centers, galleries or studios.
