We are excited to announce that Sharita Towne, who has taught and mentored in PNCA’s BFA, MA and MFA programs since 2016, has been appointed Program Head of PNCA’s MFA in Visual Studies in the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies.
We recently sat down with Kate Copeland, PNCA Dean of Academic Affairs, to discuss how 20 PNCA faculty members came together to develop a new hybrid approach to providing an art and design education that continues PNCA’s hallmark ability to prepare students for lives of creative practice.
