Sculpture - BFA

The sculpture area is an environment that encourages exploration in many ways. The undergraduate course of study allows students to develop conceptual and technical understanding in the three-dimensional arts. Sculpture courses introduce both contemporary and traditional practices in the discipline. Students are encouraged to investigate issues of object-making, as well as installations and public art interventions.

In our 16,000 square foot sculpture facility, a wide range of traditional techniques and hand skills are taught alongside computer-aided fabrication processes.   With a broad technical vocabulary, students are enabled to fabricate their artworks with a diverse range of materials that are a part of the discourse in contemporary sculptural practice.

In 2000 level courses, students are introduced to formal and conceptual issues of three-dimensional art, with training that includes processes of wood and metal construction, modeling, moldmaking, and casting.  At the 3000 and 4000 level, students begin to develop a self-directed studio practice with advanced fabrication techniques that include stone carving and bronze casting.  BFA sculpture majors can apply for a personal studio space in the South Thomas Street Art Complex.
