3-D & Sculpture Lab

MIAD’s 3-D and Sculpture lab space boasts approximately 20,000 square feet of workable space for students in all disciplines to work and create. Accommodating needs for students of varying backgrounds, the lab supplies the needed machinery and technology for working in wood, metal, plastics, vacuum forming, model building, bronze casting, ceramics, clay and much more. Found among the open, general space are separate rooms allowing for individual spray booths, tool rooms of shared usage, classroom space, in addition to many individual workstations for needed projects and ideas. True to the nature of the rest of MIAD’s Jane Pettit Bradley building, a wall of windows spans the length of the lab, allowing natural light to flood the facilities opening up the expansive facility even more.

The lab is monitored and maintained by some of MIAD’s most revered staff and faculty members. Students in the space can often be found asking a lab supervisor to share their knowledge or wisdom when it comes to working on a specific project and/or idea. Found also in the workspace is an underlying willingness of the staff and faculty to assist in problem solving, or machining techniques that 91fansstudents encounter along the way.
