Creative Leaders Council

This new advisory board helps to shape PNCA’s future by advising on how to expand PNCA’s creative brand and deepen the College’s influence in the world of art and design. The members of the Creative Leaders Council are creative thought leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to the value of art and design education. Each Council member has been invited because his or her talents and expertise can make a significant difference in the life of the College and in the world of art and design. We look to these leaders, individually and collectively, to lend their expertise, their insight, and their connections as we continue to expand PNCA’s reach as one of the nation’s fastest growing independent colleges of art and design.
