With the recent opening of the newly renovated building (converted from a former postal sorting facility) housing the Fine Art and Illustration departments, 47 studios were made available to students for the independent development of their artwork. These spaces were designed to foster a sense of community and provide a personal space for Fine Art students to create and store their work. The studios also provide the privacy necessary to develop installations and meet with faculty and visiting artists to discuss their projects.
We wanted these studios to provide incentive for students to hang out and create a community. Developing strong peer relations skills will be essential to their professional lives as working artists when they leave the College.
