Explore a multitude of media, techniques, and ideas reflective of contemporary sculpture and integrated practices in a dynamic learning environment.

You will investigate diverse conceptual approaches, media, and processes through core studio and elective courses.

Sculpture at Pratt Munson is a dynamic investigation of various mediums, techniques and ideas, building a rich vocabulary to explore new concepts throughout the core studio and elective courses. Our student sculpture artists have access to the school’s wood, metal, clay, and plaster fabrication studios to develop new approaches in material usage and conceptual exploration.



Sculpture And Integrated Practices

All first-year students take the Foundation program’s core curriculum, along with required art history and liberal arts courses, and begin the fine arts major curriculum in the fall of the second year. While continuing with their required art history and general education coursework, second-year students take more focused courses in their chosen area of emphasis, whether painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and integrated practices, or jewelry. In addition to their studio requirements, all fine arts students take a series of departmental seminars that address social, historical, and critical issues in contemporary art.
