Metals Studio

Metals courses focus on the direct study of sculptural processes and the visual language of three-dimensional art. Courses offer an in-depth study of the technical and aesthetic development of metals. You will develop professional skills through hands-on work, technical demonstrations, critiques, and exploration of traditional and contemporary metals. Weekly events include critiques, demonstrations, field trips, and presentations by artists.
