No matter how college brochures and websites make an art school seem like a perfect fit, it is during a visit or tour where you can begin to imagine yourself there: working toward your future in art and design.
A great way to visit is at an open house event. At an open house, you will have an opportunity to meet other prospective students, giving you an idea of how you will fit into the college’s social environment. You’ll meet faculty, staff, and get a chance to explore the studios and classrooms. You’ll also get to ask and hear questions, which may cover topics you haven't yet considered.
Our January open house is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how a PCA&D education in the arts hones your creativity, challenges your intellect, and provides you with real-world experiences that equip you for a successful life and career in the arts.
Learn about our BFA degree programs in digital media, fine art, graphic design, photography, illustration and check out our students’ work. You can also learn about our continuing education program, which offers professional certificates, credit and non-credit courses and workshops, pre-college classes, and studios for young artists in grades 1-9.
Register today and:
- Bring your portfolio and get personal advice from a professional artist.
- Get to know our students and faculty.
- Find out what you need to know about student life, housing and the options available to help you cover your educational costs.
- Learn more about our adult education options, certificate programs, and youth classes
Our January Open House will be held 11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 16.
