Goodyear Sculpture Studios
The Sculpture Studio is an art making space that facilitates general fabrication and sculpting processes in a number of materials. It currently includes a wood working shop, metal working area, metal casting foundry, outdoor work area, and a wax, resin and mold making room. The mission of the space is to support students currently enrolled in art classes and to serve as an art faculty research space.

Training/Process needed to use space
Currently, the space is open to students currently enrolled in an art class who have undergone heath & safety training for the space and a number of tool demonstration and training sessions. Even students with previous experience must get training to use the facility. Students must also read a Sculpture Studio Use Policies handout. Students ONLY have access to the sculpture space when an Art Dept. faculty member, studio technician or studio proctor is there to monitor tool use. All tool areas are locked outside or scheduled classes or open studio times (these vary semester to semester but are posted at the start of every semester). A student who has successfully completed a sculpture class is welcome to come back to use the facility during open studio hours (not class times, obviously) and with the understanding that assistance from the technician or proctor on duty is prioritized around the needs of current students. Only students currently enrolled in art classes at the Goodyear Art Studios can enter the Goodyear Building (card swipe). However, one can knock on the door or make arrangements via email to set up access to enter the building.
