WHERE IT ALL HAPPENS. We have the tools, technology and equipment for you to realize your vision.
The Studio is more than just a place to work; it is the place where artistic visions become reality. At UMD, students enrolled in Art and Design courses work in state-of-the-art studios, each designed to fully support creative exploration in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography and many many more.
UMD’s printmaking studios, for example, has grown to be one of the best facilities in the region offering students opportunities to explore a complete range of traditional methods along with contemporary and evolving approaches that include hybrid forms, “green” practices, book arts, and installation in a large, bright, and environmentally-friendly space.
Other noteworthy facilities include multiple Mac labs, an interdisciplinary digital imaging lab (Viz Lab), and the brand new Motion + Media Across Disciplines Lab (MMAD Lab), which offers students opportunities in 3D motion capture and high definition video production.
