Art + Design Faculty Use

| No Comments
Faculty who want to use the rooms (to demo or supervise students) will need sign up on the calendar in the Art Office 317. Because expensive equipment is now being kept in these rooms, set up for efficient use, the shoot rooms WILL NOT be available for casual and unsupervised key check out by students. You must specify on the calendar in the Art Office if there have made plans for a student to use the studio. Please plan to reserve at least one week in advance for class hours on Monday - Thursday.

Fall hours for Art + Design faculty and their students:
Monday through Thursday by faculty on the calendar in the Art Office 317 reservation only.
Faculty must supervise students when using the rooms and equipment stored there outside of the student shoot studio hours. Faculty must also sign the student's Check In/Out sheet and bring it to the mailbox of Kristen Pless once the student is finished using the studio.

Fall hours for VizLab Researchers :
Friday 8am - noon
Saturday 8am - 4pm

The Art + Design Shoot Studio rooms are for use by current students and faculty in the department. Access to the studio is by reservation only. The rooms are kept locked and not for casual access.

STUDENTS  must follow the HOW TO RESERVE steps for scheduling the space. Students may be asked to confirm that they are currently taking a class in the Art + Design department.

FACULTY must follow the steps on Art + Design Faculty to reserve space via Google Calendar system. You must set up an account with UCalendar to access the Shoot Studio calendar. (see Jane for help). Please plan to reserve at least one week in advance for class hours on Monday - Thursday.

GRADUATE STUDENTS who are currently teaching may use the faculty system for reserving use of the rooms. Weekday evenings preferred.

About the Shoot Studio

| No Comments
In the fall of 2009 we opened up the Art + Design Shoot Studio for reservation by students and faculty in our department at UMD. The Shoot Studio is located in the basement of Voss Kovach Hall, room 25. Students can follow directions on > HOW TO RESERVE  to schedule their time in the shoot studio for class projects. Faculty should read the info for them on the link > Art + Design Faculty. The Shoot Studio is maintained for projects connected to Art + Design class assignments and creative work. In the 2011 School year, the Shoot Studio space has been reduced by one room. We hope to gain back more space as our department moves into renovated classrooms in the future.
