Why Earn a Sculpture Studio Art Minor?

A minor in Sculpture will help empower you to develop a personal voice, a professional and creative practice, self-discipline, and cultural awareness.

You'll be challenged conceptually and technically, and much of your time will be spent creating original works. The curriculum also exposes you to all aspects of 3D 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.
