The majority of disciplines impose analyzing the possibility of integrating the sculptural forms in the environment, the interaction between form and environment, ways of presentation, representation, and rules regarding the placement and presentation of the art object, through the permanent report between the traditional and the contemporary.
The working environment is dynamic and the students can work both on personal or team projects, alternative or experimental, and on the didactic ones, the emphasis being that of creating a professional context, which favors the individual career development.
The Sculpture department has well equipped laboratories (furnace for bronze and other nonferrous metals, ceramic, metal shaping laboratory and dedicated workshops, properly equipped), allowing students to experience a variety of materials using specific facilities, equipment and professional tools.
Equipment access is unrestricted and the students may borrow it, according to the particularity of each project, a fact which allows a qualitative production in relation to the field requirements.
