The undergraduate degree in Sculpture at the University of the Arts immerses students in the fundamentals of sculpture and technical procedures in a variety of materials. Working closely with faculty that are also working artists, the Sculpture program will expose you to a three-dimensional way of thinking that will help make you more perceptive and aware as an artist and more broadly as a creative individual.
What makes us different: extraordinary facilities in an artist’s paradise
The Sculpture studio and shop facilities are comprehensive and include air tools for carving, a foundry for bronze and aluminum casting, a wood and fabricating shop, a complete metal shop for forging and welding, and a mold-making shop and a studio for figurative study.
Upper-level students take courses in media and other fine arts disciplines like Painting/Drawing and Printmaking/Book Arts, specializing in the area that reflects your interests with a focus on projects.
Our faculty members have had their work exhibited in places ranging from the Royal Scottish Academy of Edinburgh to the Michener Art Museum in Pennsylvania, and their work is in the permanent collections of institutions such the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Library of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; the British Museum, London; and the National Museum of Taiwan.
And with more outdoor works of art than any other city in North America, Philadelphia is an aspiring sculptor’s paradise. There’s also a vibrant gallery scene as well as numerous funding possibilities for individual artists.
