Inside the Program

Returning art student uses ceramics to craft her future

Students focusing on sculpture can channel their passion for art into building with many different mediums.

Growing up, Mary Kathy Robb's father worked in the business field while her mother was interested in the arts. Both pushed her to follow in their line of work, so she decided to study both. But ceramics became her passion.

Robb started college in 1979 but left before receiving her degree. Many years later, she's at WSU pursuing what she loves.


The sculpture concentration offers a varied and rich learning experience in a broadly defined interpretation of three-dimensional media. You'll gain experience in modeling, fabricating, carving, casting, nontraditional and contemporary techniques. Advanced students are expected to pursue disciplined study in theory, art history and materials through original work, studio critique, class readings and discussion.


A degree in art from Wichita State will nurture your creativity and give you the knowledge, skills and connections for success in the workforce—and in graduate studies.
