Art Shop is located in the 3D Annex, Rm 108

3D Print lab, Rm 108B

We are here to support the students, faculty, and staff in the School of Art. The Art Shop provides safety training and demonstrations several times throughout the semester for classes and individual students. Many students in the program receive their initial training through Painting I and 3D Design courses.

During all open hours, there is always a technician on duty to mentor students and help maintain and supervise the shop. The Art Shop offers a popular tool check out system for students, provided that the tools are approved and signed out. 

The Art Shop also has an easy to access loading area for students to drop off or pick up their work or materials.

Students must complete the Shop Safety training and consult with the Art Shop technician before working in the shop or checking out approved tools.
