Appointed Faculty, Associate Professor, Cert/BFA/Continuing Ed
John Horn is an essential part of the Classical aspect of the Sculpture Department. He is a natural teacher, is great with his students and possesses knowledge and skills that are important to sculpture and of high value for the school as a whole. He has worked on many private commissions and has exhibited in New York and Philadelphia.
After studying with Walter Erlebacher and Richard McDermitt Miller (the “Figurative Sculptor of Soho”) and earning his BFA and MFA, Horn went to Rome, where he resided for 12 years. While in Italy, he developed his unusual and extraordinary career, studying at “Studio Simi” in Florence, apprenticing at Henraux Marble Studios near Carrara, working with archeologists in the Capitoline Museum in Rome and working as an assistant to mold maker Romolo Felice, through whom he met and worked with Giacomo Manzù.
Horn teaches Introduction to 2D Anatomy, Figure Modeling, intermediate and advanced Large Figure Sculpture, and intermediate and advanced Ecorche within the Certificate/BFA program, as well as courses within the Continuing Education program.
