Student Studio Spaces

Studio Space Application Deadline: Sunday before Spring Term Finals

Art majors are the only students eligible to apply for a private studio space. Spaces will be prioritized to senior art majors enrolled in ART490/491: Senior Project in art. Remaining studio spaces are granted through a portfolio review process after the spring submission deadline: Sunday before finals week. Rising 3rd year art majors are strongly encouraged to apply. Note: Art majors enrolled in ART490/491: Senior Project do NOT need to apply for a studio space.

Review process: includes a digital submission of strong studio coursework 3-5 pieces, a recommendation from an art program, 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. Apply using the Studio Space Application Form.

Studio Rules

Violation of these rules may result in the loss of your studio space, or hinder your ability to have a studio space in the future at Luther. If there is damage to the studio that requires facilities to restore the space, students will be responsible to pay for the damage.

  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.
