Facilities

Recently renovated facilities provide vastly expanded space and equipment for the arts.

Studio Arts

  • computer graphic and graphic design studios feature state-of-the-art equipment to facilitate the mastery of a discipline that requires up-to-the-minute knowledge of publishing technology in traditional and new media.
  • a larger printmaking studio, featuring an improved ventilation system, enables students to experiment with a wider range of printmaking processes, including photo etching and silk-screening.
  • expanded painting and drawing studios capture natural light for artists as they develop their creativity and skill in carefully appointed work areas.
  • the expanded photography studio has room for 15 students to work at individual stations, allowing class sessions to be devoted to mastering new developing techniques under the professor's guidance.
  • the sculpture studio, with 14-foot ceilings and exceptional light, is larger and better equipped than its predecessor and allows students to use more media and techniques, including metal working and welding. The studio includes access to the outdoor sculpture work yard.
  • a concourse and central art court connects student and faculty studios with a high traffic area to create exhibit space for exchanging ideas and critiquing works; the light drenched space also attracts campus community members interested in viewing the art.
  • the new studio courses in filmmaking are supported by an edit suite with 16mm film bench editing stations and new Final Cut DV editing set-ups as well as a film classroom and screening room for demos and film and video viewing.
