Students in the Art – Sculpture major at Colorado State University are encouraged to experiment and innovate while exploring content in the areas of object-making, installation, site-based work, performance, time-based art, and digital processes.
Through the integration of readings, classroom discussion, presentations, and individual research, the sculpture curriculum is designed to enable students to explore concepts and content relevant both in today’s contemporary society and in the art world. The synthesis of this broad spectrum of information is intended to aid students as they develop a unique personal vision for their artwork and studio practice.
Refined technical skill will be developed and is a requirement for students as they progress through the Sculpture concentration.
Students will demonstrate:
- Fundamental knowledge and mastery of media and processes necessary to communicate meaning in a work of art.
- Ability to communicate clearly about their own art and the art of others.
- Knowledge about and be well versed in contemporary art and demonstrate the motivation to view and discuss current local, regional, and national exhibitions.
Art graduates possess a number of transferable communication, analytical, and critical thinking skills appropriate for work in traditional business as well as positions in academia and roles as freelance artists, graphic designers, art educators, art historians, studio fine artists and as “creatives” in government and industry. Many employers appreciate art majors for their multiple skills and their ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and work environments.
Participation in internships, cooperative education, and service learning opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Graduates who go on for advanced studies can attain more responsible positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
