Sculpture

Sculpture offers a range of experiences in making three-dimensional art objects in a well-equipped studio.  The studio accommodates the additive, subtractive and transformation processes.  Equipment for arc, TIG and oxygen-acetylene welding is provided for the teaching of additive methods. For the transformation process, there is an excellent foundry for casting  bronze and aluminum, including facilities for several mold-making techniques.  For subtractive methods, there is equipment for stone and plaster carving.

Facilities
The sculpture area has 9,696 square feet of studio space, with 24 hour access.  Individual studio spaces for students with a sculpture emphasis are also available.
