• UWM Sculptures Sam Scheller


Our program’s curriculum establishes a solid foundation of traditional skills and concerns that promote both a historical and contemporary platform from which students can navigate. The curriculum seeks to enable students with the skills necessary to explore concepts and content relevant both in today’s world and in the creation of a personal vision.

With sculpture encompassing a myriad of materials, processes and media, the sculpture faculty seeks to promote individual student exploration and independence within a contemporary framework. The curriculum provides exposure to a range of skills, techniques, and resources. It is, however, the ability to think that is at the heart of the program as students are challenged to employ the skills and mindset to participate in future endeavors.


Our nearly 6500 sq ft sculpture facility houses a complete woodworking studio, a 15 ft x 15 ft spray and sanding booth, large metal fabrication and construction area, plaster, mold-making and ceramic shell areas, and a foundry and wax working area. There is also a 800 sq ft installation and project space, and access to digital media.
