Welcome, students who like to experiment! Not limited to a single orientation or medium, our program’s exploratory approach to sculpture provides for a stimulating learning environment. From object-making to performance-based installations, students develop their individual interests through this malleable discipline. Our courses give students exposure to metal work, woodwork, moulding and casting, bronze and aluminum foundry work, public art practices, environmentally sustainable techniques, as well as a wide range of diverse materials and digital technologies.
Our program features:
Sculpture is a practice that addresses the way objects, space and human bodies coexist in the world. When you consider it this way, the medium becomes endlessly broad, as well as highly relevant to contemporary life. Critical analysis skills are developed through making things. In a sculpture program, thinking and making go hand-in-hand.
A Bachelor of Fine Arts degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
You’ll take courses that address the practice, theory and history of art and learn the current practices in sculpture. You’ll also take seminar discussions that explore new ideas and imagine the frontiers of contemporary art.
