SCULPTURE

The sculpture program at ASLD encompasses a broad range of three-dimensional creation.

From molding anatomically-correct human heads, to creating found-object assemblage pieces, to welding large-scale metal sculptures, our sculpture courses give students the necessary skills to translate their vision into 3D works of art.

Classes are available for all levels and are perfect for artists looking to expand their work off the canvas.

Please note that some sculpture courses are held offsite at private studios, so be sure to check the location when registering.
