Our studio courses are taught on the spacious upper level of the Art Center (except for ceramics and sculpture). The facility, having undergone renovations, is now a spacious and modern track-lit studio.
The lower level of the Art Center has been renovated into a digital media lab that we call the Mac Lab. We subscribe to Adobe Cloud which means we always have the most up-to-date Adobe software. For students enrolled in digital media courses (digital photography, web design, graphic design) all current technology, printers, scanners, and storage space are provided to make professional level projects. The lower level also houses the Bethel College Digital Photo Lab & lounge
We believe it is our mission as artists to make the spaces we work in, not just functional, but spacious and aesthetically pleasing. Students who have assisted feel they have taken ownership in their environment and thus, have helped the project grow immensely.
Ceramics is taught in a facility adjacent to the Art Center. Currently the space holds 4 wheels, a slab roller, hand building studio, and two electric kilns. We also use this space for our sculpture class & are equipped with wood working tools.
Weaver Art Gallery
Our Weaver Art Gallery is located in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center. Because of its location next to Chapel, the Weaver Gallery is a highly trafficked area. To see the show schedule, click on the link to the right “Gallery Art Shows 2014-2015”.
Since 1996 the Weaver Art Gallery has hosted several solo exhibitions of nationally renowned artists, thematic group exhibitions such as Cross-Country, a biennial national competition, and Juried Student Exhibitions. The annual spring juried art exhibition displays the best work produced from students on campus. The capstone for all senior visual arts majors is the thesis exhibition. All senior Visual Arts Majors display their projects in the Weaver Gallery in the spring semester. The Bethel College art students, the college and off campus community all benefit from the witness to quality visual art.
