Figurative sculpture is woven into the
fabric of LCAD.
LCAD is unique in being one of only a handful of colleges that offer a rigorous curriculum in figurative sculpture. Our classes employ a variety of techniques, producing works ranging from 1/3 life-size to life-size. These courses are a valuable hands-on approach to advancing drawing, painting and animation skills. Courses in sculpture can be combined to earn an emphasis or a minor in sculpture.
From their solid technical grounding to their personal expressions in thematic sculpture, LCAD students are prepared for entering the competitive field of sculpture by gaining commissions, exhibiting as gallery artists or branching out into the entertainment industry.
