$100 can

Provide a partial scholarship for an individual middle school student to attend a course as part of our Young Artist Academy program. The middle school years, grades 6 – 8, are a crucial time for young people with creative talent to develop the critical skills needed for success in the arts. PCA&D’s Young Artist Academy provides a strong foundation on principles of design, art history, and creative thinking. The class focuses on allowing students to think more like an artist through self-discovery, camaraderie, and creative problem-solving, and includes a mini-exhibition for the students.

Help to make it possible for PCA&D to offer multicultural exhibitions and educational programs to students in Lancaster County. The significance of art in the lives of our youth cannot be underestimated. Yet, just when research is finally emerging that supports this, budget cuts and curricular demands are threatening the foundation of creativity in our public schools. In order to fill that gap as well as enrich the community, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design developed The Mosaic Project, a multicultural exhibition and education program for students and families in Lancaster County.

$1000 can

Provide scholarship money to a BFA student. We are proud of the exceptional level of creativity displayed by our students at PCA&D. For many of these students, an education in the arts would not be possible without financial support. It is through scholarships that students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds are given the chance to develop as artists and students.
