Art Facilities & Equipment

There are traditional Art Studios for the following areas:

  • Ceramics

  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture

— We have 20 state-of-the-art iMac workstations to support Studio Art and Design in OP1210 and 5 Mac Pro towers for high-end 3D modeling, video and animation processing in OP1224. These labs are equipped with scanners, laser printers, large format inkjet printers, and graphic tablets which are utilized by both studio art and design concentration students.

– The Design program now expects students to have their own computer hardware and software (Adobe Creative Cloud) to be majors in Design.

— The Art Department uses professional-grade graphic, page-layout and image editing programs: Adobe™ InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, AfterEffects, Dreamweaver, Animate and Premiere.

— The Design program also has a traditional media space for traditional design production and illustration processes such as watercolor, gouache and line art.

The Art Department houses the University Art Gallery where professional and student exhibitions occur throughout the year.


Students Contribute to Fundraiser for Food Bank

Ceramics majors and other art students made bowls for a fundraiser for the Pantry for Adair County, an organization that provides help for those in our community who experience food insecurity. The "Empty Bowl Soup Lunch" sold tickets for a meal consisting of soup, pie, and beverage. People attending could choose to take a bowl that was made by an artist, for $30, including the luncheon, or one that was simply "unique," which only cost $20, including food. It was a big success and the students' bowls sold out well before the end of the event. Thank you to everyone who made this a success! -Read more Students Contribute to Fundraiser for Food Bank
