The painting program is located in two large studios in the Art Building. One studio is assigned to both introductory and intermediate level painting students. The other is assigned specifically to advanced level painting students who set up their individual work areas. In addition, a private studio is available each year for two painting students through an annual competition. The painting studios provide the opportunity to pursue work in various media, including oil, acrylic, encaustic and air brush.

Location: Art Building, upper-level.


Within the walls of the Department of Art we have various forms of traditional and innovative technologies. Our undergraduate and graduate students have access to innovative tools such as a laser cutter, a 3D printer, and CNC lab for fabricating, using a computer in ways that are difficult or impossible to do by hand. We also have two computer labs, one that has twenty-two stations and is equipped with a very wide range of software. The second lab has software and hardware (printers, scanners, etc.) specific to the needs of graphic design.

In addition to the equipment we have within the department we also partner with the Department of Architecture + Interior Design, the College of Engineering and Computing, and the Department of Technology in Business + Design to make other digital tools available to our students. For instance, students can develop 3D virtual environments and display them in life-size in Miami's CAVE or on smaller projection screens that simulate three dimensions.

We work hard to ensure that our students, both undergraduate and graduate, have access to the tools they need to be competitive in the 21st century.
