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.


Steel String Lap Ukulele

Steel String Uke

CE Instructor Frank Irby just finished this beautiful steel string lap ukulele. It sounds as nice as it looks and is amazing to play. Frank still has a couple of spots in this term’s Ukulele class.

Painter’s Craft

Jerry Sumpter Teaching

Jerry Sumpter is teaching Painter’s Craft this term. The Strategies class is designed to assist students of painting to build beyond foundation knowledge—toward a more complete skill set. This class, we will focus on two very powerful , yet diverse painting strategies. The first four weeks of study are dedicated to employing techniques developed by the French Royal Academy. During the remaining four weeks attention shifts to the ideas and methods taken up by the Spanish and American “lyrical” Realists. As a whole, the class will focus on color, image construction and composition as it directly applies to the painter’s craft.

Picture(s) of the Week - 3/8/2014

So, we had a busy day on Saturday. In addition to hosting our Saturday Reception for the Youth Program’s Making History exhibition, classrooms were quite active. Check out some sweet pictures of students working with clay, and some glue goodness.

Yep. Saturday was a little messy, too. But that comes with the territory. If you would like to see more images from this week’s classes, visit our Photo Archive on Flickr.
