About the Sculpture Program

The LSU School of Art offers concentrations in sculpture for both the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and the Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art. The sculpture program provides students with a high-quality, comprehensive education in the three-dimensional arts. The sculpture area is one of the integral parts of the school and promotes cross-disciplinary investigation and collaborative ventures.

The undergraduate program begins by giving each student a broad 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 focus on developing personal style and the creation of a body of work.

Students are encouraged to develop their own unique visions. The program welcomes a wide range of aesthetic approaches, both traditional and non-traditional. Our graduates have an impressive history of success in both exhibitions and professional accomplishments.

Beyond the Studio

The College of Art & Design Lecture Series and the School of Art’s visiting artists program bring a dynamic spectrum of visiting artists and critics to campus. Exhibitions, fieldtrips, and study abroad opportunities, including Art in Ireland and Art in New York City, offer a broad range of practical and inspiring experience, bringing both the art world and larger world perspectives to the learning environment.


Sculpture facilities provide a traditionally based studio environment with a broad range of equipment and material approaches. Facilities include a complete woodworking shop (the Design Shop) and fully equipped welding and fabrication areas, complete with forging stations and an outstanding foundry facility, which provides the capability of casting bronze, aluminum, and iron.
