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 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.
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 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.
