BiCo News Article

Art Club Exec board wanted to clarify that we aren’t taking away right to the art studio we just wanted to

new classroom!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Along with the beautiful main studio (and faculty housing), Arnecliffe boasts a former garage/office/random room. We’ve been calling it the office but it’s really not been fit for use. It was poorly ventilated due to broken windows, had mildew/run off issues, smelled pretty strange, had a hole in the door, etc.  So last semester, Anna had the idea to see if we could get it renovated. With the help of the Dean’s Office, the President’s Office, and Facilities, the “renovation committee” (Anna, Ariel, and Teresa) managed to arrange the renovation of the space over winter break.

and man, are we happy about how it came out!


Before shot


from the door to the main studioyay table!new windows!
