The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts 3D Sculpture program focuses on a comprehensive experience through the work in a variety of mediums such as clay, plaster, wire, glass, pewter, and wood. We have block classes that focus on Ceramics, Sculpture, and Design. This 4 year program allows students to get a foundation in 1 or more areas before moving on to an Advanced study or AP course.
Students in the 3D Sculpture program will become skilled in a variety of sculpting techniques, including carving, casting, modeling, and construction. Students will unlock their creative ideas through guided hands-on activities and independent project research. Students that finish the 4 year program generally earn 3 AP college credits and are well prepared to apply for art schools and/or gain employment as a studio or gallery assistant.
