Elyse Lodermeier, Brenna Noltner, and Ellen Kurtz agreed sharing the painting studio with students of various majors has helped them in the early stages of painting.
"Working from still-lives and models, we learn the techniques of painting," said Lodermeier, an Entertainment Design and Studio Art major. "In the beginning, our pieces all look the same. But as we progress, we develop and solidify our styles."
Students purchase their paints, brushes, and cleaners, as well as wood and stretchers to construct their canvases. Canvas, easels, and storage space is provided.
