Fine Art Studios
The Applied Arts Building provides unique facilities for each of the six studio art areas that are conducive to the specific needs of each discipline. Studio spaces are flexible and adaptable given the needs of the class. Extensive open studio and lab hours allow access to these spaces outside of class periods.
Design studios, labs and specialty computer labs are housed in both the Applied Arts Building and the adjoining Micheels Hall with unique facilities for each area that facilitate learning for each design discipline. Extensive open lab hours allow access to these spaces outside of class periods.
Through the eStout program, UW-Stout is a laptop campus. All students are provided with a laptop computer and software appropriate to their field of study. State of the art computer labs in Applied Arts and Micheels Hall provide the latest, industry standard hardware and software to students in BFA programs.
The Process Lab is designated for use by students enrolled in art and design courses, who are working on class-related projects. The lab is equipped with a wide variety of woodworking and metalwork tools and related equipment. Students also utilize the Fab Lab on campus for 3D printing, laser cutting/engraving, and other specialty projects.
The Print Lab houses a variety of printers, including archival quality and large format options, for grayscale and color printing class projects. The facility is supervised during all open hours by either the lab supervisor or work-study assistants. Additional services are available at the MSC Service Center.
The Student Gallery provides students with a professional public gallery space to exhibit work. Studio Art majors exhibit their capstone work in this gallery each semester in small group shows, and throughout the year, other students exhibit a wide variety of work during 1-3 week exhibits.
