LSU Sculpture is committed to providing the highest quality and most comprehensive education in the three dimensional arts. The Sculpture area is one of the integral parts of the School of Art and promotes cross-disciplinary investigation and collaborative ventures.
The Undergraduate program begins by giving each student a broad base introduction to the many possibilities of sculpture. Intermediate courses provide specific instruction in process and technique as well as development of individual aesthetic direction. Advanced courses are focused on developing personal style and the creation of a body of work.
The Sculpture Area facilities provide a traditionally-based studio environment with a broad range of equipment and material approaches. These facilities include a complete wood working shop, housed and maintained by the College of Art and Design. The Sculpture shops provide a fully equipped welding and fabrication areas, including forging stations, and an outstanding foundry facility, providing the capability of casting bronze, aluminum and iron.
Students are encouraged to develop their own unique vision. The program welcomes a wide range of aesthetic approaches, both traditional and non-traditional. Our students have developed an impressive history of success in both exhibitions and professional accomplishments. The program maintains studio space for undergraduate majors.
