Sculpture exists in both the interior and exterior realms. Sculptors look within themselves as artists to develop their personal vision while also considering the function of their craft in a public context. Collaborating with other SCAD programs, the sculpture department explores endless combinations of construction in any material, using a variety of techniques to create work for both public and private spaces.
Sculptural successSCAD sculpture students gain a broad range of technical skills with equal attention paid to professional development. Through the department's facilities, career opportunities and rigorous curriculum, students acquire a strong understanding of their individual voices as well as the practices required to attain their goals with respect to galleries, commissions, public art, education and industry.
