The Painting and Drawing undergraduate program is located on the second floor of the Smiley Art Building. Classrooms are spacious and light, and are equipped to handle large-scale works. Individual studios and storage spaces are provided for BFA majors. MFA students have generous private studio spaces on the third floor. Larger common storage rooms are adjacent to these studios. Art History and Foundation Year classes and offices are on the first floor. The building has wi-fi, plus two computer labs for student use on the second floor. A key-card system provides student access for working nights and weekends. A well-equipped wood shop is accessible next door in the Fine Arts II Building, which also houses the Sculpture, Metal, Printmaking, and Ceramics programs.
A Media Resource Center in the FAB provides art students with a large format digital printing station and many digital still and video cameras that may be signed out free of charge. Additional digital and computer resources are located with Photography and Graphic Design in the Old Library. Students have access to other studio areas via elective coursework, and interdisciplinary activity is encouraged by all programs.
