Continuing Education Blog

PNCA offers evening and weekend classes for adults and young people. For adults we offer courses in art, craft, and design, as well as professional development classes. For children we have Saturday classes during the school year and week-long camps during the summer. In addition to our regular teen classes, we also offer immersive summer Pre-College Studios. Our blog below gives you an idea of some of the goings on, and you can see our full course catalogue online here.

Visual Elements

Our Visual Elements class with artist and educator Kendra Larson has been going well. Students have worked on several drawings including an observed still-life. For the first two weeks of class students worked with charcoal, learning how to articulate value and space within a two-dimensional composition. During their third class session students worked with a variety of different materials and integrated color into their drawings.
