Sculpture

 

The sculpture program at Siena is based on a new cross-disciplinary approach to art making.

Utilizing a wide variety of materials and technology, students create works that incorporate various artistic and academic disciplines. With an emphasis on conceptual development and formal articulation in three and four dimensions, students work in installation art, kinetic/interactive art, video mapping, and rapid prototyping, in addition to traditional materials and methods of object making.

The Sculpture studio combines latest in both traditional and digitally based sculpture equipment.
