The Studios – July 7 – August 1, 2014

Pre-College 2013

“The Pre-College Studios completely exceeded my expectations! I have learned so much and I feel like my learning will continue because of the doors this program opened in my ways of thinking. My perspective on art making is completely different.”PCS Student,

PNCA’s Pre-College Studios is a rigorous program structured to give participants a true undergraduate experience. Students choose from one of a variety of studio courses, attend one or several over the course of our 4-week term. Students work within their chosen studio to develop their craft through technique-focused exercises and the exploration of varied methodologies and approaches. At the conclusion of each Studio Course students are asked to particpate in a class review and formal critique.

Critique

Critique plays an important role throughout the duration of the Pre-College Studios. Students are asked to thoughtfully consider and evaluate both their own work and the work of their peers. These critiques take place within a students chosen Studio focus.

Residency – Art House

ArtHouse Move-in Day

ArtHouse is a striking five- story residence building that’s sliced through the center to bring light into each room and hallway. Bright, airy apartments overlook the park and city, with hallway walls designated for student art displays. Its proximity to public transit, bikeable roads, grocery stores and family friendly spaces make ArtHouse the ultimate spot to call home.

PNCA’s Residence Life program provides a supportive and vibrant environment that facilitates creativity and collaboration. We educate students through in-house social and academic activities, as well as events that connect students to the life, culture, and arts of Portland.

LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR HOUSING: June 20, 2014
Limited to space availability

ArtHouse Move-in Day

Student housing is located near campus and is supervised by a Pre-College Summer Studio Resident Advisor. Housing with PNCA’s Pre-College Program allows students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the full college experience of living away from home while still being in a safe and comfortable environment. Residency with PNCA’s Pre-College Program also allows students a chance to explore Portland, both through individual exploration and supervised activities with our RA.

PNCA staff meets all students at the airport and transports them to their residence hall and at the completion of the program students are accompanied to the airport. Students use Portland’s safe TriMet system for transportation between campuses.
