About the 2D: Drawing Studios

The Drawing Studios on each campus are welcoming, generous, and multipurpose rooms designed with adjustable lighting setups.

Within these open spaces Painting/Drawing students are encouraged to build an energized painting community, hosting such events as the student-led Painting Club and Graduate Drawing Group, Figure Drawing Nights, Stretcher Bar Tutorials, and the small-talk lecture series Notes from the Studio that features casual artist talks by the Painting faculty.
