What is Sculpture at WVU like?
We encourage experimental approaches to art-making including mixed media, mold making, installation, environmental and community-based work. You'll have the opportunity to participate each year in group metal pours, learning the technical and safety requirements to successfully cast in bronze and aluminum.
The BFA in Sculpture provides a thorough introduction to many different materials and processes and is structured to enhance the your ability to solve structural, spatial, formal and conceptual problems. Initially, you will concentrate on basic construction techniques and craftsmanship and then explore various tools and techniques used in the wood and metal shops. Large-scale works are encouraged and may be exhibited on the grounds of the Creative Arts Center.
All interested students must apply to the University and submit a portfolio for the School of Art and Design for acceptance.
