The sculpture faculty encourages students to explore relationships between ideas, materials, perceptions, criticism and contemporary as well as historical issues. Students are expected to develop a conceptual and technical base for their visual vocabulary. The sculpture concentration also emphasizes fabrication and casting skills. The faculty introduces and discusses professional aspects of art. Because of the versatility of the facilities, students may utilize virtually any medium. Sculpture maintains well-equipped areas for clay and clay modeling, metal casting, mold making, stone and wood carving, steel and wood fabrication and welding.
