Drawing and Painting Studio
Located in the Arts and Sciences building on the North East campus, the drawing and painting studio is equipped with everything a learning artist needs to execute outstanding work. Flexible control over lighting, plenty of floor space and good ventilation make this an ideal space for studio drawing and oil painting. It is also a classroom and design studio where students can spread out at large tables, learning compositional principles through hands-on techniques. The studio’s computers are furnished with Adobe CC design software for blending hands-on and digital techniques and for doing classroom research.
Located at the Elkton Station Campus, Cecil’s ceramics studio features spaces for handbuilding, wheel-throwing, clay preparation and glazing. The studio is equipped with a slab roller, pugmill, manual extruder, four electric kilns, and Brent electric wheels. An Olympic gas raku kiln is housed outside. The glaze area features stainless worktables, digital scales, and a fully stocked chemical closet. Because a separate three-dimensional design art room is located down the hall, students can easily collaborate with students and faculty in sculpture and three-dimensional design courses.
