Studios & Facilities

Five spacious studios with large skylights are designated for painting ateliers. Ateliers are equipped with easels and tabourets for individual use. Linens, props and other equipment for model set-ups are also available as needed. Elaborate set-ups are created in the ateliers for students to work from. These set-ups serve for long-term projects, or for shorter exercises.

There are two large sculptures studios linked to two smaller project rooms, including a welding room, kiln and areas for plaster, stone, and wood working. Semi-private studio spaces for sculpture students are also available.

Students apply at Registration for semi-private studios. MFA students in their second year are given preference in terms of studio allocation. Students who do not have the use of a private studio are provided with lockers for general storage. Rack rooms and flat files for storage of works on paper are provided for all students throughout their time at the School.

Working from the human form is an integral part of the School’s curriculum and course content. Understanding one’s perception of the figure in relation to its context and with regards to the connection between the human figure and the space it occupies forms a foundation for students’ future work, whether figurative, abstract or both.
