The William E. Buehner Digital Media Lab
Outfitted in 2015, the William E. Buehner Digital Medial Lab is home to the latest in digital media technology, all available to our students taking one of several digital media courses. Technologies include four Sony 4K digital video cameras, a DJI Phantom 4 drone, six Canon DSLRs for filming and 10 Mac workstations with dual monitors each loaded with the latest version of the entire Adobe Suite.
In addition, the space also accommodates a photo and video studio equipped with a green screen and professional lights, as well as pro audio microphones, all of which provide our students with the best tools available to gain the most up-to-date skills in the digital media arena.
The Field Music Center
In 2001, the renovated Field Music Center was completed in the basement of the Chapel. It contains three teaching/practicing rooms, two large ensemble rooms and a brand new, state-of-the-art music-computer lab, allowing for the composition, recording and producing of music in all genres. The School is also fortunate to have three grand pianos, including a Steinway.
The Music Technology Lab
The music technology lab has workstations for ten students. This lab is primarily for computer based composition, keyboard skills, ear training and theory.
Ruger Fine Arts Center
The Ruger Fine Arts center has beautifully lit, spacious studios fully equipped to increase a boy's awareness of the visual world. Each is full of tools to craft furniture, pottery and prints as well as supplies for drawing and painting. Student artwork is displayed throughout campus and frequent exhibits showcasing featured student-artists are held in the Tremaine Gallery.
The Pottery Studio
This studio is set up for work with earthenware, stoneware and raku clay. We have six electric potter's wheels, a slab roller, two extruders, a wide variety of hand tools used for forming, shaping, and decorating pots and sculptures. A separately ventilated room houses two electric kilns for most work, and a small gas-fired “top-hat” kiln for raku firings is located just outside the studio, on the Ruger terrace.
With two presses and plenty of well-ventilated space for rolling out inks, this studio is an effective space for relief and intaglio printing.
Drawing and Painting Studio
Bright and airy, as are all of our studios, this space is multi-purpose. It may be used for drawing or painting, or when needed, for the construction of large scale sculptural and installation projects.
The woodshop is well-equipped, both with power and hand tools. The shop itself has ventilation and vacuum systems which keep airborne dust and wood chips under control.
This space is used to create wood-epoxy, sea kayaks and other small wooden boats.
Photography Dark Room
It is here that students learn to develop 35mm prints in black and white.
