Work Study/Research Opportunities
Students with financial need may qualify for the University's Work-Study Program. Students currently contribute to the Art Program in a variety of ways. As assistants in Morlan Gallery, students learn the basics of gallery curation, installation, conservation, and promotion. As studio assistants, students learn the dynamics of maintaining a professional-grade studio. As general program assistants, students assist faculty with various administrative and course preparatory projects. For additional information, please contact the Financial Aid Office. Apart from student initiated Jones/Kenan research grants, faculty members occasionally employ students as assistants with their own professional research. These opportunities afford students exposure to professional level research practices--while under the supervision of a producing faculty sponsor.
Student Art Club
The student initiated art club, named Wet Paint, is an all-inclusive club is for art majors, minors, and all art enthusiasts. They sponsor regular art sales (the oragami cranes pictured to the right proved to be a popular fundraiser), campus events, and group travel to various local and regional arts events. Inquire at the Campus Organization Fair in the fall, or simply ask around--people will always send you in the right direction.
Student Art and Literary Publication
Student artworks and creative writings are featured in the annual publication of The Transylvanian, one of the oldest student art publications in the country. Editorial and publication staff for this journal are selected at the start of each academic year, and the entire campus community is invited to submit work for consideration.
