Allegheny Studio Art students learn through creating

We’ll help you develop a broad intellectual grounding in the traditions of the visual arts through an understanding of multiple hands-on disciplines. You’ll learn to contextualize artworks, and understand the relationships between praxis, theory, and history.

Our studio art students exercise their creativity through internships, community engagement, study away, and more.

Bring Ideas to Life

The Allegheny Lab for Innovation & Creativity (ALIC) is an ecosystem of resources that give students the tools to best demonstrate the skills they’ve learned while at Allegheny in their post-graduation lives. The lab is a space where science and the humanities intersect, providing hands-on experience with technology and opportunities to think critically about its context, history, and implications.

The ALIC consists of two distinct resources:

  • The fabrication lab, which houses 3D printers, laser cutters, and a CNC/plasma cutter
  • The computer lab, which contains 26 design and game development computers
