Lake Matoaka Art Studio, Constructed 1991-1992

The Lake Matoaka Art Studio is one of three buildings occupied by the Art Department. The building overlooks Lake Matoaka and is comprised of a windowed teaching studio at each end, as well as five faculty studios. Students take courses in two-dimensional arts: printmaking and drawing.

The building is often overlooked, as it is hidden to those that do not frequent the woods surrounding Lake Matoaka. The studio is nestled on a hillside, located just east of Lake Matoaka Amphitheater, and is in the shape of a trapezoid, making it unique among the traditional colonial architecture of the majority of William & Mary.

The main office and majority of the Art Department is housed in Andrews Hall on New Campus. A third building, the Ceramics Studio, is behind the Undergraduate Admissions on Jamestown Road.
