Sculpture

A sculpture emphasis will start at the fundamentals level, a class designed to expose students to several media processes, most commonly the use of plaster, wood, and stone. As a student advances, several new processes such as metal fabrication, clay, and assemblage are introduced. As processes advance, so does the emphasis on the student’s own personal vision. After several levels of advanced sculpture, students are asked to create sculpture through their own productivity and ideas. Because sculpture is an area not clearly defined by a specific media, many sculpture students decide to use combined media for their art explorations.
