The School of Art at Kent State University is happy to announce the opening of the student-run retail shop, ARTshop.  The ARTshop is open to the public on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12:00-6:00 p.m. The shop provides a means for students and student groups to sell their artwork to the public. 

"The ARTshop on campus allows students to work on entrepreneurial and marketing skills by selling their own artwork and interacting with customers. It's important to for students to show their work to others outside of the art community," said undergraduate, Kayla Ewanko.

Join us for the Foundations program's spring show awards and reception on Wednesday, May 3 from 5-7 p.m. The Foundations Program is a series of courses that reveal the underlying visual rules and artistic strategies that run throughout all of our School's majors. Foundations projects are often faster paced, unpredictable, and are not specific to a particular material or process. Foundations projects frequently challenge students to transform cheap, free, or found materials into extraordinary new compositions and push students to work in new ways.
