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.

This Summer, CE instructor Palmarin Merges is teaching Collagraphy on Saturday mornings in June. Collography is a printmaking process that combines the elements of collage with drawing. Plates are built up with objects as diverse as gesso, fabric and found objects and printed on a press.
