Faculty Sarah Paul
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Sculpture: Basic Materials & Techniques | Sculpture: Aesthetic + Functional Structure

Required at the junior level for all Sculpture majors and open to all other students at the sophomore level and above. Prerequisites: SCU229 Basic Materials Processes and Techniques OR SCU229A Fundamental Structure: The Aesthetics of Materiality.
