The WSU Painting area includes three large distinct, adjacent spaces designated for the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Painting levels. In every studio, the newly installed overhead system of electrical outlets allows for more control and flexibility in lighting. The Advanced Painting room also has a skylight running nearly the width of the room. All three studios are furnished with sturdy easels and rolling metal taborets allowing each student an individual workspace for the duration of the course. Adequate space is provided throughout the term for canvas-stretching and preparation. The Advanced room is equipped with an electric mitre saw for hand construction of stretchers. All three areas maintain sinks and OSHA approved disposal units for a safe and ecologically-sound painting environment. Still life materials are stored in shared units within the Painting area. 24 hour studio access is available to students enrolled in all levels of Painting.
