The Sculpture concentration at TWU provides a nurturing environment for students to explore a wide range of possibilities relevant to contemporary artistic practice. Students will gain an understanding of basic sculptural processes and materials, including working with wood, plaster, metal fabrication and a range of alternative materials. Students are expected to experiment with materials and processes to develop a visual sensibility of their own, informed by conceptual and technical concerns. Crossing over disciplines and alternative ways of making are encouraged and supported. Concurrent to becoming familiar with a broad range of materials and processes, critical skills are refined through in depth group critiques, assigned reading and discussion sessions, and individual guidance. An energetic and open atmosphere is maintained to encourage experimentation and risk taking.
