The School of Art occupies over 50,000 square feet of fabrication facilities, multi-purpose classrooms, media-specific studios and workshops, student and faculty studios, staff and faculty offices, presentation rooms, and exhibition space—offering students access to both traditional and state-of-the-art tools. Media areas are each staffed by expert university technicians who teach and assist users on best practices. All Art students have 24-hour access to workspaces that include: digital fabrication labs, printmaking and sculpture shops, and painting and drawing studios. School of Art upperclassmen and graduates also have 24-hour access to private or shared studios which support the development of professional art-making practices.

HEALTH & SAFETY

University Safety Rules & Guidelines
We live and work in a shared environment. Some materials and equipment used for art-making pose a potential hazard if students do not follow safe practice procedures. Federal and state laws require that students be informed regarding the materials used in the classroom.

Working with Environmental Health & Safety on campus to provide a safe work environment for all, we have provide the following links below to help students, faculty, and staff find important information regarding classroom safety, and training information for graduate and undergraduate monitors.

Students & faculty are expected to read and be familiar and with following procedures and resources for using equipment in the school:

EH&S Material Safety Data Sheets
EH&S Training
EH&S Forms, Policies, and Procedures
EH&S Fact Sheets

Drawing and Painting Studios
Spacious drawing and painting studios provide students with clean, well-lit surfaces, wall space, multi-media presentation tools, prop closets, stretcher storage bins and flat-file storage. These classrooms have both natural light and blackout shades, and lighting grids for controlled lighting or projection needs. Underclassmen enrolled in drawing and/or painting classes have 24/7 access.
Print Media
Print Media facilities allow students to work in screen print, intaglio/etching, lithography, relief, monotype and digital processes.

The newly redesigned print facilities fill two large, well-ventilated rooms, with additional separate spaces for etching, clean preparation and darkroom processes. The influence of emerging technology and safer green practices are constantly adapted and introduced into the print curriculum.

Print facilities also support courses involving experimental printing practices, installation, and large format digital output. Students are given freedom to explore their ideas beyond the restrictions of traditional printmaking, and encouraged to utilize all the tools available to them through the School of Art in the production of their printed work.
Digital Print Studio
The Digital Print Studio provides digital imaging services and support with specific focus on large format printing and scanning.

The Digital Print Studio aims to provide the best possible scanning and digital prints to School of Art students, faculty, and staff. Non-major students taking classes within the School of Art may request prints related to the particular class they are taking.
Photography
Photography Facilities allow students to work in both traditional silver-based darkrooms and state-of-the-art digital labs.

The CFA Photo Facility allows 24-hour access to the Beginning Darkroom, Advanced Darkroom, Shooting Studio and the Digital Lab, and is located in Margaret Morrison Carnegie Hall, near the College of Fine Arts building. These facilities are useful for documenting student projects as well as for producing original works.
