CSUN’s very own art world

John DuBois

Compared to many of the other departments at CSUN, the art department has a very open door attitude. Walking around the art buildings, located at the northern tip of campus, you will find many classes in progress with their doors wide open. On some of the nicer days, students even work outside. Projects for the ceramics classes can be seen on display in the courtyard in the center of the art wing, along with drawings, paintings and graphic design work in display cases. The attitude of most people you will find in the art department seems to be very welcoming and open-minded. Simply approaching and asking an instructor politely can get you into a classroom full of hard-working student artists. So the next time you walk by the art wing with its colorful buildings and slanted roof tops, stop and consider walking through it for a change.
