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.

Youth Program Internship

For the last five years the Youth Program has offered an internship to interested BFA students during PNCA’s Spring semester. Our internship program has seen a great deal of change over the years, shifting from a somewhat informal 2-credit internship to a rigorous, hands-on 3-credit internship with an academic component and practicum. Our Interns work in our classrooms on Saturdays and assist Instructors. In the afternoon they learn different teaching techniques, educational approaches, etc. Here are some of our past participants.

Art in Action

It’s really great to work with these BFA students, and to see their enthusiasm for art and education. We have four new interns joining us for our Winter and Spring terms. They will be working in our classrooms starting this Saturday. If you would like to see what our students and interns are up to, visit our In the Classroom collection on flickr.
