The Fine Arts Education Center provides the core for the Fine and Performing Art Departments of San Juan College, and serves as a community performing arts theatre. Key design issues were the integration of the facility into the existing campus and pedestrian and vehicular traffic control.
The facility features an 800-seat auditorium/theater with complete stage, backstage and set construction areas. Special features include stage with full fly loft and grid platform, performance lighting and sound system, 50-piece orchestra pit with operable lift, removable seats for handicapped users, box seating and an auxiliary sound/lighting control console station on the front edge of the balcony.
An art wing features an art gallery and includes ceramics, painting, graphic design, sculpture and print making instructional and laboratory areas.
The music department accommodates an instrumental Studio, Vocal Studio, recording studios and practice rooms.
A large, public meeting room seats from 500 to 750 people and is equipped with multimedia presentation systems. The room can be divided into two, three or four smaller areas with movable partitions.
