As a Southeast student, you need the right space and equipment to create. Catapult Creative House is home to a wide variety of tools, studios, and labs that are available to you by request.


Our studio spaces range from interior design to art to sewing. In these spaces you'll be able to bring your creative commercial ideas to life. Explore our options and get in touch with a studio coordinator for the spaces you are interested in.

Interior Design

Interested in residential or commercial interior design? We provide spaces and software that mimic the environment of an interior design firm. Our interior design studio provides you access to two drafting tables and an area to lock up your supplies and projects. A computer lab is available to give you full access to the software you need to build digital models.

The coordinator for the interior design studio is Southeast's professor of interior design Michelle Brune.

Catapult Art Studios

If you are in need of a unique environment to work on your projects and entrepreneurial efforts, Catapult's Art Studios are available to help. An application to use the Art Studio space is required. Students allowed to use this space are selected based on quality of work and proposed contribution to Catapult.

Our Art Studio spaces are about 8' x 8' and have stainless steel worktables, locker storage, and provide access to computers equipped with the full Adobe Creative Suite.

As an Art Studio participant, you will be expected to actively promote your work and individual disciplines through Catapult's retail space and events.

If you have questions about Catapult Art Studios, contact our coordinator, Associate Professor of Art Joni Hand.

Sewing Studio

For students and community members looking for a space in which to work on your sewing projects, Catapult's sewing studio is available to you. This studio houses six sewing machines and an embroidery machine and is ideal for anyone wanting to work on whatever fabric project you have in mind.

If you have questions about the Sewing Studio, contact Catapult Creative House Operations Manager Leah Powers or Instructor of Fashion Merchandising Dr. Allie Grotts.

Spray Booth

Keeping your creativity safe when indoors is important. Catapult has a spray booth available to any student. Equipped with rolling tables and a ventilation system, this room helps you stay safe when using spray paint and other aerosol-type crafts.

Photography Studio

Our Photography Studio provides you as a Southeast student access to the space and equipment you need to work on your photography. This studio is equipped with Mac computers and Adobe software, allowing you access to the tools you need to edit your pieces. When you have a finished piece of work, we have a display wall where you can proudly display it.

Questions regarding the photography studio should be directed to Assistant Professor of Polytechnic Studies Bradley Phillips.


We aren't limited to creative studio spaces here at Catapult. We also offer labs that provide computers, printers, and vinyl cutters. In these spaces you can work on your graphic design projects, create custom vinyl decals or transfers, and more.

Computer Lab

We also have computing stations on our first floor in Room 102 where you canc om in and work on your own personal business and start-up ideas. You will have access to a 3D printer and all the resources needed for app development.

Multimedia Lab

We want to give students across campus the opportunity to collaborate with each other to create a wide range of multimedia projects. Our Multimedia Lab houses equipment that ranges from a vinyl cutting machine and inkjet printers to a tabletop photography studio. Here, you can work with multimedia students to create things like product photography, flyers, labels, signs, graphics, and t-shirts.

The multimedia coordinator is Assistant Professor Bradley Phillips. Please contact him with any questions.

Exhibition Space

Within the Multimedia Lab is the Multimedia Gallery Wall. It is open for any student on Southeast's campus to display your unique works of art. We welcome all mediums for exhibition consideration in this gallery and an application is required to be considered for an exhibition. Applications for a group show do not require you to write an artist statement, but you must properly represent your works by photograph.
