The Chab Weyers Education and Hixson Lied Art Building provides new offices and classrooms for Doane's nationally recognized education and art programs. The new building is designed to inspire teaching and learning in a collaborative work environment. Color, texture, lighting and acoustics are used to create a comfortable and enriching setting for students, faculty and staff.

Designed to be a first-class art space for the School of Arts and Sciences, seven instructional areas offer specialized places for drawing, ceramics and painting.

Easily accessible lab and studio spaces in the art department provide opportunities for students to paint and create.

Ample student commons space will allow for a relaxing study atmosphere between classes and projects. Classrooms are designed with student needs in mind and offer exceptional space to create on your own timetable, work closely with Doane faculty and learn in group settings with other students and visiting masters. 

Classes are small, averaging 15 students per class in introductory courses and 6-10 students in advanced courses, guaranteeing individual attention and focus. 

 

Facilities include:

  • studios for ceramics, sculpture, drawing, painting and print making
  • semi-private studio space for advanced students
  • two large ceramic kilns and two etching presses
  • video and slide library
  • graphic design and Mac computer lab
