Sculptural Practice builds on a foundation of traditional sculpture and craft techniques by encouraging you to explore a wide range of forms, processes, materials, and concepts. Using a balanced approach that employs OCAC’s ceramics, metals, fibers, wood, and digital studios, you are invited to investigate the 3D skills needed to develop a personal voice and communicate your ideas. By combining hands-on, material-based methods, digital fabrication and conceptual concerns, you are enabled to develop various approaches to spatial and contextual works: object making, installation, site-specific work and digital forms.
