The Department of Art and Design offers 15 areas
of concentration and has professionally equipped,
safe, well ventilated studios to support these
concentrations. Some of the equipment available in the
studios include: a large induction furnace, ceramic kilns,
excellent casting and blacksmithing facilities, computer
lab, woodworking machinery, papermaking facilities,
film/video facilities, darkrooms for color as well as black

Studios are located in three different buildings,

building contains studios for ceramics, furniture design,
product design, sculpture, jewelry, metalsmithing,
blacksmithing, and woodworking. It is a large well
equipped facility offering the latest state-of-the-art
ventilation. Art and Design Studios South (formerly Lee
Hall) contains studios for drawing/painting, photography,
printmaking and a papermaking facility. In addition, the
