It combines training in established methods with the exploration of non-traditional strategies by incorporating new materials and technologies, installation, as well as experiential contexts. The curriculum fosters intellectual inquiry, creative activity, and practical skills in making as well as thinking about art. In addition to wood working, metal fabricating, and foundry techniques, the curriculum also incorporates three-dimensional computer modeling technologies. Activities in and out of the studio help students develop individual approaches to the medium. In addition, they are encouraged to incorporate other studio processes such as metalsmithing, ceramics, or printmaking into their sculpture practice.
In the sculpture program, students benefit from well-equipped studios that allow them to create wood working, metal fabricating, and foundry projects. The three –dimensional computer modeling lab allows them to explore new materials and technologies as they progress through the program. Majors earning a BFA in this program have individual studio spaces in a common area shared with jewelry and metalsmithing students.
