The Dimensional Practice Area is an adventurous arena of four studio disciplines - Ceramics, 3 Dimensional Design, Metal Arts and Sculpture - built with vigorous conceptual thinking, integrating the parameters of sustainability, commitment to material exploration, and the fabrication of objects/installation with new technologies and traditional processes. Learning in Dimensional Practice courses results in an individualized practice that is shaped around sustained curiosity, technical proficiency and creative dexterity to craft unique concepts. Our Studio Laboratories, some of the finest facilities nationally, are updated annually with leading edge production equipment to provide students in Dimensional Practice vital learning experiences. The six Area faculty and five studio lab specialists are committed to students’ professional futures, creating opportunities to experiment with advanced studio equipment, promoting lively exchanges with national and international artists in workshops, focusing on national and international exhibition/publication of creative work, and the participation in discipline-specific professional organizations.
