Continuing education

PNCA offers evening and weekend classes for young people and adults of all ages and skill levels. 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 that give young artists a view to what college will be like. Continuing Education courses are ideal for those interested in learning a new skill outside of the full-time college schedule. See our full course catalogue online here.


The Continuing Education office is currently located in the administrative offices of the Museum of Contemporary Craft on 724 NW Davis Street, three blocks south of PNCA. Please contact us at ce [at] pnca [dot] edu if you have any questions or would like more information about any of our programs.
