Painting Facilities

Students and visiting artist in skylit studio

Painting students have large individual studio spaces, a well-equipped workshop, and excellent critique space—all within our sky-lit, factory loft space, originally a Model T Ford factory.

CIA also houses the fabrication studios, a shared space, staffed and supervised by highly qualified technical specialists. Students from all courses of study are encouraged to use this space and do hands-on material studies. This communal environment gives students optimal means of making for their individual exploration and group projects.
