Recent renovations and expanded facilities have transformed the studios that are available to all studio students.
Carnegie Center for the Visual Arts
The recently renovated Carnegie Center for the Visual Arts is the hub of the program. The former historic Carnegie Library houses the Department of Art, Design, and Theatre offices as well as providing large, open, light-filled studios for drawing, painting, and design. The building also accommodates individual studio space for upper level students.
In the process of renovation is the Alford Annex. 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.
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, Jeremiah Hall provides portrait and still-photography labs and is available for documenting art work and setting up photo references for subjects.
