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.

In Progress

We’re gearing up for our annual Youth Program Exhibit which takes place during the month of March in PNCA’s Commons. Our students have been hard at work getting their projects completed for inclusion into the exhibition. This year’s exhibition theme is Portland Perspectives, artwork about living in Portland and what makes this city so special. Below is a sneak peak at some of the work in progress that will be included in this year’s exhibition.
Drawing + Painting
We will also be exhibiting artwork from PNCA’s Youth Archive which houses over 1,000 works by Youth Program students created over the last century. Very cool! We can’t wait to share this work with the community. The exhibition will be in the Commons from March 1 – 30. Make sure to stop by and take a look!
