San Francisco Studio Resources

CCA’s San Francisco studios are a collection of shared resources that support all departments on the San Francisco campus. The primary goal of the San Francisco studios is to support CCA curriculum. 

You must be a currently enrolled student, faculty, or staff member to use these shared resources.

All students must attend a general shop orientation, which defines shop rules, policies, and best practices as well as identifies various resources to consult for additional training and information, before gaining access to the shops. 

You must also pass the general safety test and sign an acknowledgement form and liability waiver.
