Art Education Classroom
The D-Wing in the Visual Arts Building houses the art education area. D102 is the main studio classroom. It is divided into two large areas by a curtain wall that can be opened and closed depending on need. The classroom has state-of-the-art technology. Dual screen projection ensures that all students see the images presented. One projector is also used for the STAR Board–which operates like a SMART Board. Internet access is provided at the podium and WiFi is available for student use throughout the wing. A document camera, VCR, and DVD player are also integrated onto the media center. The “media wall” is also a white board and surround sound provides for a fully integrated viewing experience. Laptop computers (MAC and PC), and video and digital cameras are housed in the area and available for students to document teaching and learning.
