Sculpture

Sculpture classes at the St. Louis Community College at Meramec Art Department introduce students to a wide range of contemporary concepts, media and techniques. In these classes, students are encouraged to compare and contrast conceptual and visual components of a range of contemporary sculpture, develop a working knowledge of three dimensional design and terminology, learn the structural capabilities and limitations of different categories of sculpture materials, and learn the safe operation of tools and equipment used to make sculpture from a variety of materials. Concepts studied include systems of structure, abstraction, kinetics, and out door site-specific sculpture.

The materials and forming methods include wood working, addition and subtraction in plaster, cutting and welding steel, and wax casting techniques. Sculpture students have the opportunity to pursue in-depth investigations of their ideas through a variety of material choices.

The new 3,000-square foot sculpture studio is equipped with compressed air, both oxy-acetylene and electric welding equipment, custom-design ventilation systems, a hoist and stationary tools. The studio includes a fenced and roofed outdoor work and storage area with outlets for both air and electric tools and portable welders.
