The exterior of Kepple Hall, the new home of integrated media and studio arts programs

Kepple Hall

Kepple Hall is Juniata's home for integrated media and studio arts. It houses numerous 2D and 3D studios for traditional and digital media, including a photos studio, two digital studios with new Apple iMacs and large format Epson printers, a 3D fabrication studio, and painting and drawing studios.

From digital art, graphic design, and video productive to painting, drawing, and sculpting, the facility is the first building on campus where students creating many forms of art can collaborate and view each other's work on a daily basis.

"Kepple Hall is not just physically bringing everyone in the arts together; it's bringing all the inspiration together...My only disappointment is that I'm not in my first year at Juniata, because I can tell that Kepple Hall will always be a place to expand creativity by blending many different fields." -Chelsea Scafuro '18

Students working on ceramics in the ceramics studio

Ceramics Studio

Juniata's Ceramics Studio, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, has: 6 kick wheels, 11 electric wheels, a slab roller, and all the necessary clay and glaze mixing equipment. Our kilns include: 1 gas kiln, 2 electric kilns, 1 test-size electric kiln, 1 soda kiln, and an anagama kiln. The Anagama kiln is one of 3 in Pennsylvania. It is a wood fire kiln, meaning that all of the heat comes from wood not gas or electricity. Also, the glaze is created by melting ash due to an ultimate temperature of over 1200 degrees. The ceramic students at Juniata fire it off about once a semester. The process requires the students to fire it for 5 days straight, with students taking 3 hour shifts so that it is manned 24 hours a day. For those who love clay, there is no other experience like it in the world.

Peace Chapel

The Peace Chapel is a landscape architectural site designed in 1988 by architect Maya Lin. It is located on the 315-acre Baker-Henry Nature preserve and provides a contemplative setting within the rolling hills of Huntingdon County.
