Tyler Digital Communication Center
Home to the graphic design program, Tyler houses three up-to-date, fully furnished Mac labs and faculty offices. Most graphic design classes meet in the labs, giving students ample opportunities to learn the Mac operating system and the latest Adobe Creative Design Suite, the platforms of choice for most of today's designers. In addition to class time, students have access to these secured labs, allowing for more time to create, experiment, and finish assignments.
Carnegie Center for the Visual Arts
Originally constructed as a Carnegie library, the Carnegie Center for the Visual Arts retains much of its historic character as home to art and design’s main studio facility. As a product of the building’s history, large floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the main floor, flooding dedicated drawing and painting studios with natural light. Renovations on the lower level have added a fully networked two-dimensional design studio, as well as a printmaking workshop. In addition to faculty and administrative offices, the Carnegie Center for the Visual Arts also houses private studios for upper-level studio art students. View photos of the studios »
Jeremiah Hall serves as a temporary home to studios for the digital photography classes. While much of the student’s work is completed in the Mac labs in the Tyler Digital Communication center, JH provides portrait and still-photography labs and is available for documenting art work and setting up photo references for subjects.
The Annex is scheduled to be completely renovated for use in the spring of 2013 and will house generous studios for sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking. These sculpture studios accommodate equipment for woodworking, metal sculpture, and carving. The ceramics studio houses fifteen potter’s wheels as well as space and equipment for hand-built pottery, glazing, and firing. The printmaking studio houses equipment for relief, intaglio, and lithography processes.
Cedarville's print and postal services is a valuable asset to the entire campus but especially to the graphic design program. Graphic design students often send files to be printed, making good use of the facility's high-quality black-and-white, four-color, and large-format printers. Print Services provides resources at a reasonable cost, making printing manageable on a college student budget.
