Studio Safety Policies and Procedures

Studio space is not to be considered a large dorm room, it is not a hotel, it is not a restaurant or lounge. Studio space is instead, a specialized area to do design work, study design, discuss and evaluate design projects, work on individual projects or as members of small design teams. An overall look of professional organization and sensitivity to design should therefore be reflected in the physical environment of the studio. It should be truly functional and aesthetically interesting workspace.

Your mom, dad, aunt, uncle, maid or butler is not enrolled in class with you. You need to pick up after yourself. 🙂

Guidelines for working in the Studio

A general concern for safety and health well-being should guide all use of materials, equipment, decisions of design making and general etiquette when working in the studio environment.

Studio Hours are:

Weekdays—8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Weekends—12:00 noon – 5:00 p.m.

  • The studio phone is for emergency use only.
  • A blue emergency phone is also located outside in the walkway between the two main art buildings.
  • A first aid kit is located on the wall outside and immediately to the right as you face the studio entrance door.
  • Cover used exacto blades with tape before disposing of them in the trash cans.
  • You are responsible for cleaning up your own work areas, including cut off paper and matt board left in the finishing/paper cutting areas.
  • Return books and magazines to their proper location in the library after using.
  • Clean up all food remnants from snacks or meals.
