Petition for: Permanent Studio/Room space- for Durham University Art and Creative Societies
The Durham University Art Society is looking for a university owned art studio which can be dedicated to visual arts activities. As there is no permanent studio space in Durham, many students artists are struggling to find a place where they can work on art projects.
With a dedicated art studio space, the Art Society will be able to hold regular life drawing and arts & crafts activity with more freedom without worrying about getting the room messy. Also, it will enable student artists to work on longer art projects, including large canvas paintings, oil paintings, sculptures and more. If an art studio is present, the Art Society can also potentially provide art supplies such as easels, canvases, oil paints etc. for members to use.
Student groups and societies other than Art Society will also benefit from a university owned art studio. Any student groups needing a large space to work on artwork or hold workshops should be able to use the studio. Some examples can be making theatre props and set designs or holding art workshops for children, but the potential is limitless.
If you are a student artist looking for a place to work on your art project, a student group or society who will be interested in utilising the studio for your group’s need, or anyone who is supportive of a more creative art scene in Durham University, please sign the petition to support the founding of a university owned art studio!
Every sign helps!
