Sculpture

The Sculpture program 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 mould-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 open 24 hours a day.  Individual studio spaces for students with an emphasis in this area are also available.
