Student Studio Spaces

Art majors are expected to work outside of class on independent studio projects in their free time. Private studios will be available to Junior and Senior Art Majors (and selected incoming 1st Years with strong portfolios). Studio spaces are granted after a portfolio review process during Spring of 2nd Year. First Year awardees will still need to apply again in the Spring of 2nd Year.

Review Process: will include a digital submission of strong coursework - 3-5 pieces, a recommendation from an Art Faculty member or instructor, and a brief proposal for the intended use of the space. If accepted, the signed application form is a contract for the lease of the space. A perceived underuse of the space may result in the loss of said space. A violation of studio rules depending on severity and a student panel review may also result in loss or suspended studio privileges.

1. Respect the communal studio environment, both the space and your peers.

2. Do not “borrow” materials from the department or your peers.

3. Take advantage of your studio space.  If you don’t use it, you lose it.

4. Put all tools away and clean up after yourself.

5. Common working areas are shared space.  Do not leave your tools or work in these spaces.

6. At the end of the academic year or semester, reset the studio space to it’s original state.
