Advanced Sculpture (SCU4118.01)

John Umphlett

This course provides the opportunity for a self-directed study in finding one’s voice as a sculptor by researching sources of influence and inspiration. Students are expected to undertake a significant amount of work outside of regular class meetings. The goal is for students to become fully versed in issues that define traditional and contemporary sculpture. Regular individual and bi- monthly critiques with visitors will be complemented by student presentations of issues pertaining to their work. Students will produce a visual presentation that highlights their interests, influences, and lines of inquiry.
