Students taking a printmaking class in the Goldman Schwartz Studio Building

In September 2015, the Brandeis Post Baccalaureate Program in Studio Art moved to a newly renovated on-campus location in the Epstein Building, situated right at the Roberts-Brandeis commuter rail stop. It is close to the Rose Art Museum, campus lectures, screenings and concerts.

Epstein has 10 private studios with various configurations of windows, skylights and track lighting. The building has two critique spaces, a woodshop, a computer lab and simple kitchen facilities. Students also have access to the nearby undergraduate studio building, Goldman Schwartz. Classes in Printmaking and New Media are taught in Goldman Schwartz that houses a media lab, printmaking studio, and fully equipped sculpture facility.

Individual Studios

Every student who enrolls in the program has a large private studio within Epstein. Students also have access to communal storage rooms equipped with racks for large and small work. The post-bacc studio spaces are available to students 24-hours-a-day. It is a locked and secure space.

Sculpture Studios

All post-baccalaureate students have access to the sculpture facilities in both Epstein and Goldman-Schwartz. The shop in Epstein has a woodworking area. The studios in Goldman Schwartz can be used for woodworking, welding and plaster and clay.

Printmaking Studio

The printmaking studio in Goldman Schwartz currently has presses and materials for intaglio, relief printing, lithography and silkscreen.

Media Lab

Students enrolled in certain fine arts courses use a computer lab in Goldman-Schwartz fully equipped with Mac computers, scanners, and printers. There is also a smaller media lab on the first floor of Epstein that students also have access to.

Campus Wide Resources
