Please note that when a sculpture class is in session, students registered in that class have full priority in the shops. Additionally, the shop is closed when workshops are scheduled. Please consult the Workshop schedule for applicable dates.
In the wet lab, we have two dedicated film developing rooms and a large collective darkroom with 14 Beseler enlargers. (Graduate students in Photography may have access to an individual darkroom.) Complimenting both the wet and dry labs is a large selection of medium and large format cameras and both tungsten and strobe lighting equipment.
Due to the high enrollment in photography courses, studio facilities and equipment checkout are available for regular use ONLY by students enrolled in photography classes, faculty, or staff of the Mills College Art Department who have completed the mandatory orientations. Graduate students who may not be enrolled in classes, but have completed necessary orientations, may gain access to the labs, and all students enrolled in art and intermedia classes are invited to take the Friday workshop series. Undergraduate and graduate students who are not enrolled in photo classes but who complete the Friday digital imaging workshop sequence may gain access to the digital lab, but may only sign up 24 hours before the desired time slot. Priority access to given to students enrolled in photography courses. Please email Phil Bond at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The digital lab is always monitored.
