Wondering how you'll keep the momentum going without access to kilns, table saws, or Cintiqs?

 

Good News:

We're piloting a new program that will offer studio/shop/lab access to alumni for the summer.

From June 1 — August 4, PNCA Alumni who complete a signed and dated liability waiver will have access to the Animated Arts Lab, Ceramics Studio, Darkroom, Digital Print Studio (DPS), Make+Think+Code, Printmaking Studio, Video + Sound Lab, Wacom Lab, Welding Studio, Wood Shop, and BridgeLab Career Center ...all summer long!

 

Here's How It Works:

Click here to fill out your Liability Waiver

  • All participating alumni will need to turn in a signed and dated liability waiver for each studio/shop they’d like to use. You can complete your Liability Waiver by clicking the link above. If you're having trouble with the form, please contact alumni@pnca.edu.
  • Alumni using PNCA studios will need to bring their own materials. There is no storage space for alumni materials.
  • Alumni cannot use PNCA facilities to work on commercial jobs.
  • Currently enrolled students (BFA, MFA, and Continuing Education) have first dibs on facilities and tools.
  • Alumni must follow all safety rules and facility etiquette.
  • Facility access is at the discretion of the Studio Managers and can be revoked.
  • We expect that you have experience with the tools and techniques of a studio/shop/lab. Studio Managers and Assistants will be on site to answer questions but cannot offer training in new processes.
  • Street parking only. The lot is reserved for staff and faculty working over the summer.

Because each facility has its own equipment and staffing considerations, there may be specific requirements and hours for each studio/shop. For more information about each facility and to fill out the required Liability Waivers, look below or email alumni@pnca.edu. Please keep in mind that this is a pilot project. Thank you for your patience as we iron out the details and determine its feasibility moving forward.
