2012 was an exciting year for students enrolled at Academy of Arts University’s School of Sculpture, with a number of classes moving from the 410 Bush campus in the city out to the scenic bayside locale at San Francisco’s historic Cannery building at Fisherman’s Wharf. The Cannery, an earthquake retrofitted 1907 structure that boasts classic architecture and fantastic high-ceiling studio interiors, is the perfect venue to inspire students looking to explore the sculptural arts or refine and enhance their artistic skills. The Cannery is also host to several AAU galleries that are open to the public and well-positioned to showcase our students’ work to the many travelers that frequent this landmark location.
As a way of introducing AAU’s new Cannery facility to both current and potential students who haven’t shuttled out to the wharf yet, we’ve posted a handful of photos above to give you a sense of what you’ll find when you visit us, including some peeks into the galleries and classrooms below. We hope you’ll stop by to visit us for a more thorough look at our facility and the wonderful amenities this new location has to offer (seriously, stay for lunch – there are TONS of great eateries!).
While many AAU Sculpture courses have moved out to the Cannery, some still currently reside at the original 410 Bush location. Here’s a breakdown of the FASCU (Fine Art – Sculpture) classes currently offered at each campus (these are the current Spring 2013 courses and are subject to change):
