Painting & Drawing Facilities

The Painting and Drawing studios are located on the fourth floor of Hopkins Hall and on the third floor of Hayes Hall. There are four undergraduate painting studios in Hopkins, each equipped with easels, palette tables, natural light, and painting racks. The primary drawing studio in Hayes Hall is equipped with drawing tables, drawing horses, and easels. An informal gallery space and project room creates a place for experimentation and presentation. Twelve semi-private graduate studios offer students prime space for their work, critique, and dialogue.

Painting students have access to extensive computer facilities for digital imaging and manipulation, as well as a projects lab in Hopkins Hall. Photography and printmaking labs in Hopkins Hall are available for use by all students. Undergraduate courses are taught in large skylit studios, and advanced students are provided with individual work areas within large shared spaces. Shared experimental spaces include the Project Plane/Plane Project exhibition space as well as a designated Special Projects space for individual or collaborative projects. A 500-square-foot gallery space offers an opportunity for exhibition and critical reflection. Facilities also include individual 300-square foot studios for each of the area’s graduate students.
