Painting & Drawing Labs

All 2D courses are offered in well-ventilated classroom and lab facilities where personal and environmental safety is emphasized. Non-toxic and less hazardous substitutions for traditional toxic solvents, pigments and grounds are used wherever possible.

Painting courses are primarily held in one of two large painting labs with tall clerestory windows providing abundant north light. A small room used for critiques and projections connects both rooms. Additional well-equipped classrooms support courses in drawing, combined media and watercolor.

All painting and drawing studios are wireless and have access to digital/slide projectors.
