Digital Fine Arts Studio (DFAS)

A resource for a hands-on experience with digital printing

CCA buildings are closed in the ongoing response to limit the spread of COVID–19. San Francisco, Alameda, and several other counties in the Bay Area have issued an extension to the Public Health Order for residents to stay at home, consequently CCA has moved to remote instruction through May 8.

We are optimistic that we will be able to reopen our shops, labs, and studios later in the year to enable students to return to work on campus if they choose to do so.

2nd Floor
Irwin Student Center
Oakland Campus

To use the resources in the DFAS, students must take a DFAS Orientation either through a Digital Media class that has used the DFAS (such as Digital Photography, Digital Drawing/Painting, etc.) or during one of our scheduled Orientations at the beginning of the semester. DFAS does not offer individual orientations, so please refer to our calendar for upcoming dates/times.

Usage Policy:

Each student is allotted 5 one-hour sessions per week, which can be reserved up to two weeks in advance. Students may also drop in when no one is reserved for that hour on the scheduler.

If you cannot attend your reservations, please remove them from the schedule 24 hours ahead of time or email If you do not cancel by the time of your appointment, you forfeit that appointment and it will be subtracted from your weekly allotted shifts.

To print on your own paper, you must come in during a weekday (Monday-Friday between 10am-5pm) and have your paper approved by Tori.
