The drawing studios (rooms 2058, 2062, 2063) are equipped with easels, drawing, and flat tables. You are free to use these studios whenever classes are not in session, but please note that it’s important to clean up after yourself.
The painting studios (room 2063 and 2094) have easels and are ventilated to prevent the buildup of paint fumes. Students who wish to use these studios need to contact the studio coordinator Nick Dowgwillo for an orientation.
The printmedia studio (room 2143) is equipped for relief, intaglio, and planographic processes. It has 2 etching presses, 3 lithography presses, and a small Vandercook proofing press. For lithography, it has a library of approximately 75 Bavarian limestones, a large graining sink, and largescale plate supports. For etching, it has ferric chloride baths, a rosin box, and multiple hotplates. In addition, the studio is equipped with a Nuarc exposure unit for photoprocesses.
Training on how to use the equipment in the printmedia studio is necessary: please contact studio coordinator Nick Dowgwillo.
