There are shared open studio spaces available on the 3rd floor of the Audain Art Centre for undergraduate 3rd year and 4th year visual art majors. BFA students have first priority in obtaining a studio space. Allocation of studios occurs at a meeting held in September, after which students are required to pay a studio and a key deposit prior to being able to access a studio.
Each MFA student is provided with a private studio space on campus in our new facilities in the Audain Art Centre for a 2 year (24 month) period. Each studio is approximately 20.5 square metres. In addition, there is an open multipurpose common room adjoining the studios and computer room available for the exclusive use of MFA students.
This year, MFA students will hold Open Studios on the second week of December. Students normally distribute invitations and posters in advance – inviting faculty, staff, undergraduates and the general public to their studios to view their work. The evaluation of students’ artwork by Visual Art faculty members also corresponds to these Open Studios.
