Practicing sculptors assist students in learning to master the skills, techniques, and creative approaches essential in the training of sculptors. Studio practice includes experience with clay, steel, stone, wood, bronze, and other materials. Students are provided with large and well-equipped work spaces necessary for creating sculpture in a broad range of sizes. The instructional program is supplemented by trips to galleries, museums, and stone yards.
