Students in 3D art classes explore three main areas of concentration: wood and metal working, mixed media sculpture, and ceramics. These courses introduce budding artists to a range of creative building and design methods embraced by historical and contemporary artists alike. These sculptural techniques are employed to produce both functional and aesthetic works of art which embrace concepts of craftsmanship and intentionality. Through study in the 3D arts, students also become practiced in developing preliminary sketches to communicate their ideas, writing reflectively about their finished works. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in exhibitions and other community events.
