PNCA is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by building an inclusive educational environment that utilizes both onsite and remote learning options.
Sculpture is a radically hybrid zone where traditional craft meets innovative tools, processes, and ideas about what a sculpture can be.
Sculpture encourages you to investigate a wide spectrum of sculptural methods, including stand-alone objects, site-specific works, multiples, installations, sculptural interventions, performance, and any number of hybrid forms of three-dimensional engagement. You will customize your own pathway as you work under the mentorship of master professionals within a collaborative studio atmosphere. And you have full access to PNCA’s 3D Labs: wood shop, ceramics studio, and metal shop with foundry, all staffed by on-site technicians.
Presentations by visiting artists, critics, and curators enrich your experience by supporting you and challenging you to understand your role as a contemporary maker and thinker. As a graduate, you will be prepared to continue your education in graduate programs and residencies or launch your career as a professional artist.
