Art Center Shops
The Shop at South Campus offers a broad variety of woodworking and metal tools, including welding equipment, is open to all students who have been appropriately trained on the apparatuses. The Shop features ample indoor and outdoor project space and worktables for constructing or destructing large or bulky items.
Students from all disciplines learn to use the latest professional equipment required to complete projects in woodworking, metal fabrication, vacuum forming, plastic sheet fabrication and fiberglass and composite fabrication. Additional facilities are dedicated to sanding and buffing, rubber-mold making, plastic casting, sandblasting, spray-painting and plaster fabrication. During the first 3 weeks of the Fall term, all new MDP students are trained on the South and Hillside shops. Once the training is complete, students can access both shops.
