Fine Arts

It is mandatory for students to attend the first session of class, during which essential information on the proper use of tools and materials as well as safety demonstrations will be given. If the first session is missed, the instructor and sculpture facilities manager, Daniel Wapner must be informed. The School of Visual Arts reserves the right to prohibit any student from tool use or facilities access as deemed necessary.

Access to the Sculpture Center shops outside of class hours is available for students enrolled in corresponding sculpture courses, unless otherwise indicated. Starting in in the fall 2018 semester, continuing education students enrolled in sculpture courses that allow access will have open access to the sculpture facilities and tools during the designated open access hours only: Friday, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Sunday, 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm. Access will not be available outside these designated open access times. Please note that the sculpture facilities are also open to all approved SVA students during these times. Should a College event or BFA Fine Arts scheduling change occur during the aforementioned times, additional access cannot be granted. Access to the Sculpture Center shops, labs and tools terminates on the last day of the scheduled course. No access will be granted after this date.

The Sculpture Center has an onsite store where students can purchase materials, including wood, plaster, metal and glazes. The onsite store is a courtesy for SVA students and is not designed as a substitute for commercial supply stores. Supply levels fluctuate and materials may not be in stock at all times.

NOTE: No spray paint, spray adhesives, spray fixatives, aerosols of any kind, resins (excluding Aqua Resin), turpentine, lacquers, etc., are allowed on SVA property. Gamsol is the only SVA-approved solvent.
