A teaching lab & printing space that serves our community.

Established in 2019, the VMPA Print Lab is your one-stop source for your print and designing needs. Housed in the Fine Arts building on the Rutgers Camden Campus, the facility is both a service bureau and learning facility. Please think of us as the campus Kinkos but with specified services for the campus community. Faculty train and advise graphic design students about business and design procedures on industry-standard printing and production equipment. The VMPA lab caters to students, professors, staff, and both local and campus organizations. We provide full printing and design services working with a variety of payment options. We are open to consult with you about your project and printing needs!

FACILITIES

Housed in the Fine Arts building on the Rutgers–Camden campus, our art studios are well-equipped and actively used. The electronic arts studios are among the best-equipped educational facilities in the greater Delaware Valley, with two newly renovated graphic design studios, two animation labs and a post-production lab. Other facilities include separate studios for painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, a photography lab, and a forth-coming digital photography studio.

CAREERS IN ART AND DESIGN

Rutgers University–Camden has a strong record of preparing successful professionals for both the commercially-oriented fields of graphic design and animation, and for studio-based professional practices in painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture. Our alumni are also practicing artists who contribute to the global dialogue in the visual arts and culture, and participate in national and international exhibitions. Our electronic arts alumni are among the leaders of the industry, working for international corporations, including Disney, IBM, NBC, and have worked on projects such as “Star Wars” and the World Olympic Games. Many alumni who concentrated in studio art have chosen to expand their studies by earning MFA degrees from top national programs, and continue their careers as professional artists. Some students combine disciplines and became educators (school and college level teachers), arts administrators, curators, art therapists, medical illustrators, fashion designers, creative directors, and advertisers, among other professions. Our faculty works in partnership with the Rutgers–Camden Career Center to help our students build their professional visions and careers.
