Adam Walls

Adam Walls has taught at UNCP since 2007. His previous teaching experience includes Limestone College, USC-Upstate, and an assistantship with Winthrop University. He received his MFA in Sculpture from Winthrop University in 2005 and his BA in Art Education from Limestone College in 1996. He has been a member of CAA and Tri-State Sculptors. Adam's sculpture has been exhibited in numerous sculpture parks and sculpture exhibitions across the country. Adam's current work is predominantly monumentally scaled steel fabricated forms which often reflect his interest in escapist fantasy.


As an educator with over two decades of teaching experience, Adam's dedication to his students is embodied in his pedagogy. He covers a variety of subjects that include steel fabrication, plaster casting, carving, woodworking, the creation of volumetric forms using found objects, stone carving, and the creation of functional art and sculptural prosthetics. His teaching philosophy promotes students to find their own voice and to make use of a variety of materials to do so.
