Leah Limpert Walt is a painter, sculptor, and draftsman living and working in York, PA and received her BFA in Fine Art from Pennsylvania College of Art & Design. She has shown in New York City, Philadelphia, Bethlehem and throughout the lower Susquehanna Valley. Leah is an amazing artist and we're thrilled to have her back on campus as an instructor in two of our summer courses hosted by our Continuing Education department - " Color Lab" in our pre-college program and " Sculpture: Content, Process &  Experimentation" in our adult (ages 16 and up) program. We sat down with Leah to do a small Q&A to learn more about her and her influences as well as the courses she will be teaching at PCA&D.

Pam Barby is our Chairperson of the graphic design department in our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program. Pam developed a love for art and design at a young age and was heavily influenced by her grandfather, who was a painter.  Her expanded passion for design began during her college years. After graduating college, she was an in-house designer within the beauty industry, and then moved on to a small design studio creating a variety of print work. She began her freelance career in 2001. A few years later she was extended an invitation to teach at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) in 2005 and has been an invaluable source of professional guidance and leader of all things in graphic design since her arrival.

As you finish your senior year in high school, it can be hard to decide what to do next.

Do you want to attend a 4-year college, get an associates degree, or take a gap year?
