Drawing & Painting-School of Art - Carnegie Mellon University

Drawing & Painting

Three spacious classrooms dedicated to drawing and painting are housed on the 3rd floor of the College of Fine Arts Building. Classrooms are flush with natural light and equipped with a lighting grid and blackout shades for controlled light or projection.

Drawing Studios are considered "dry" spaces for 2D work. CFA 308 acts as a shared studio for underclassmen who do not have private studio space. Underclassmen enrolled in Drawing & Painting courses also have 24/7 key access to their classrooms to complete work.

Painting Studios are equipped with homasote walls for stapling canvas or paper, and a ventilation system and exhaust fan, where introductory classes are taught. Advanced painting, drawing and some 2D mixed-media courses are taught in senior and junior studios on the sky-lit 4th floor of the College of Fine Arts with group critiques held in the fourth floor common area (Loge), a clean and well-lit display space.

A shared Senior Painting Studio is also allocated to 8-10 upperclassmen each year.
