BUILDING USE POLICIES

For the safety of our students, the campus police frequently monitor the facility.

Individuals in the building after hours without an activated Husky Card may be asked to leave the building.

All students working after hours in the studios and classrooms must maintain quiet, refrain from tampering with the work of others, and follow all regulations established by the faculty for each classroom/studio.

Students who are not enrolled in classes for the quarter may not use the facilities, classrooms or studios in the School of Art.

All students taking studio classes are expected to follow faculty direction in terms of keeping classrooms clean, safe, and workable for themselves and others.

LOCKERS

DO NOT STORE FLAMMABLE OR COMBUSTIBLE ITEMS IN LOCKERS

Rent lockers, by the quarter or academic year in 104 Art, M-F, 8am-4pm

The deadline for cleanout is the last day of finals for each quarter. Abandoned items will be disposed.

ART BUILDING EXHIBITION POLICES

Instructors and students must get approval from the Administrator of the School of Art to install work outside the classroom. (Use of hallway bulletin boards and glass cases do not require approval.)

Submit a written description of the proposal two weeks prior to installation to the SoA Administrator, 102 Art. Forms are available in 104 Art.

The approval process considers issues of location, health and safety, fire code, environmental factors and potential building damage prior to approval.

Applicants will be notified of a decision within a week of the application date.

SAFETY

School of Art Safety + Emergency / Evacuation Plan (pdf)

Many of the substances and equipment used in creative processes can be hazardous to you and others if used incorrectly. Enrollment in a class requires the student to know, understand and comply with all safety and equipment use policies in each classroom/studio. These guidelines are distributed to students on the first day of each class.

Art Hazards in the School of Art handout is an excellent beginning resource for learning about these dangers. This handout is available in the Academic Advising and Student Services Office (Art Building, room 104).

Material Safety Data Sheets, and information on hazardous waste disposal, UW Health & Safety Policy and art hazards are available from the School of Art Administrator (Art Building, room 102) and on reserve in the Art Library.

Spray booths are provided for use of aerosols and their use is mandatory.
