Woodshop Access for New Art Students


There are three parts to Level 1 training.


Part one


Students will be required to attend a 3 hour introduction and orientation in the woodshop.  Most students will attend during their ART1080 class.  If you are a transfer student and already met the requirements for ART1080 or a new student who would like to gain access to the woodshop prior to taking ART1080, contact Brad Smith to schedule orientation.


Orientation will be focused on shop safety and proper use of Level 1 tools:


Bandsaws

Stationary Sanders

Drill Press

Air-Powered Sanders

Air-Powered nailers

Cordless Tools i.e. screw gun, etc.

Scroll Saw

Various Hand Tools


It will also include demonstrations of various woodworking techniques using these tools.  Students will not use any tools during this orientation session.


Part two


Students will be directed to the woodshop website where they will complete the Tool and Safety Review of the Level 1 tools.  


Part three


Complete the hands-on portion of the training.  Once this process is completed, the student will have access to the woodshop facility and Level 1 tools during open shop hours.


Each woodshop user will be required to “Check-in” when using the woodshop. If the student has not completed the requirements for use, they will not be allowed to work in the shop until requirements have been met.
