Windgate Art East & West
The art & illustration program is housed in the amazing Visual Arts facilities - Windgate Art East & West: two large buildings in the center of campus with over 36,000 sq. ft and every resource an art & illustration student needs. Students have 24-hour access to both buildings.
Art & Illustration Classrooms
We are blessed with two very large studios on the third floor of Art East that accommodates all of our drawing and painting classes. There is lots of natural light, skylights that can be open or shut and many different configurations of spotlights.
Art East features a large illustration classroom with adjustable architectural tables for use in many different drawing and illustration projects.
The "Print Hive" is a very large and fully equipped screenprinting and printmaking studio in Art East. Using completely non-toxic methods and materials, it contains a 30"x60" Whelan etching press, numerous screens and vacuum tables for screen printing and two light exposure units for working with photo-printmaking processes. This space and equipment allows students to learn and experiment by combining traditional printmaking techniques with cutting edge technology and image-making. We also have a Chandler & Price platen letterpress from the 1890s, two antique letterpress proofing presses and a large collection of wood and metal type that will allow us to incorporate letterpress printing into our students' learning experience.
