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.

Picture of the Week - August 19, 2013

Just a few weeks back we concluded our smARTworks Summer Art Camp, the Pre-College Studios, and a variety of teen workshops. To say the campus was active for the last two months would be an understatement. Now that programs have concluded, we are looking back! How do you boil down such an amazing body of work by staff, faculty and students into just a few images. Well, we’ll do our best.
