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.

The Best of 2011

So as far as years go, this one was pretty great for the Youth Program. We got to make a lot of awesome artwork with our students. We met some amazing artists in both our Youth and Teen class offerings. We hosted schools from around the northwest like St. Josephs from Seattle, and joined educators from around the United States for the National Art Education Association Conference. We have welcomed new instructors, staff, and interns into our program, and had the pleasure of working with people who are truly committed to art education and a life of creative practice. If you would like to see some of our favorite moments from the last year, you can visit our Best of 2011 set on Flickr.
