Hands-On Thinking and Making

Courses in Sculpture situate art making squarely within the larger social/political narratives, cultural conditions, and technologies that produce the objects and images that become regarded as art. Projects are designed to foster hands-on thinking and making that is as informed by historical consciousness as it is by contemporary possibility and experience.

The Sculpture area houses machinery and tools for working in clay, plaster, mold making, wood and metal. In addition, a wide variety of non-traditional materials and approaches encourage work utilizing found objects, sound, video, installation and social practice.
