Art Practice Spaces

Art Practice includes three sites: Kroeber Hall, Wurster Hall, and the Richmond Field station.

Kroeber Hall

The main building of Art Practice is Kroeber Hall, on the South side of the UC Berkeley campus. It holds our main office at 345 Kroeber Hall, the Student Advisor Office at 347 Kroeber Hall, the Worth Ryder Gallery, all of our teaching studios, and many faculty offices. The building is named after Alfred Kroeber, who was an anthropologist and the father of Ursula K. LeGuin.

The building includes 15,000 square feet of studio space. The ground floor holds the Sculpture Studios, complete with wood shop, metal shop, the famous sculpture yard and a laser cutter.

The second floor holds the Printmaking Shop as well as all Digital Media labs. The third floor holds all drawing and painting studios. All studios have large windows, high ceilings, and a Northern exposure.

Richmond Field Station

The UC Berkeley Richmond Global Campus (formerly the Richmond Field Station) provides over 10,000 square feet of studio space in a beautiful San Francisco Bay-side location.
