CENTER FOR

THE ARTS

SCHOOL

Whether you are a “square one” beginner or an

accomplished mid-career artist, the Pittsburgh

Center for the Arts School has something for you!

I’m very excited about our wide variety of class offerings

from drawing to painting, jewelry to weaving and everything

in between for the upcoming Winter/Spring 2018 semester.

We’ve added new courses and teachers that perfectly

compliment our existing programming; we’ll be hosting a oneof-a-kind

master class in March—an intensive workshop with

visiting artist Frank Martin, who is the ceramics professor at

University Tennessee Knoxville, and a handful of fun Friday

night events are on the roster as well.

Welcome!

About PCA

Who we are

Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (PF/PCA) is a community-based institution that

offers accredited and non-accredited visual arts courses, access to equipment and studio space, fellowship

and exhibition programs, a robust screening program that includes the annual Three Rivers Film Festival, a

Youth Media program featuring media arts classes for children ages 5-17, and sales of work by our artist

members in our on-site shop. Annually PF/PCA serves 100,000 individuals of all ages.

The Center for the Arts School offers community arts educational experiences in visual, literary, and media

arts on-site at our Shadyside campus. Our Youth Media program also provides comprehensive media

production classes to high school students at our Pittsburgh Filmmakers campus in North Oakland. Our

approach to arts education and art-making provides a balance between process and product, and student

progress is measured in terms of personal artistic growth, the acquisition of new skills, and the ability to

think critically. Our programs are taught at the highest of standards and engage artists at every stage—

from the novice to the experienced artist, from childhood through adulthood.

Welcome / About The Center for the Arts School

Come out and take full advantage of all we have to offer this

semester. I hope to see you in the studio!

I’m also thrilled that the National Council on Education for the

Ceramic Arts will be here in Pittsburgh this Spring. N.C.E.C.A.

brings five to seven thousand clay-centric folks to town and I

kept this in mind when creating the new programming for our

outstanding ceramics studio. Not only will the school have

classes and workshops focusing on ceramics but, come March,

our gallery will be filled with wonderful ceramic exhibitions

including the National Student Juried Exhibition.

Shadyside facilities, utilize the Pittsburgh

Filmmakers Plate-maker and computer labs

and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Printshop

facilities and its printing presses. Applications

for these techniques include, photogravure,

etchings made from digitized drawings, letter

press ready digital plates, etc, all without

having to expose yourself to any acid that

would traditionally be used in platemaking.

Students have the opportunity to utilize open

access hours at both facilities for the duration

of class. Students will be supplied one 12”x16”

solar plate each, ink and supplies for printing,

the ink stuck in the texture remains. Objects

that are smooth will hold very little ink, printing

almost white. Objects that have a lot of texture

can hold enough ink to print black. Students

a print that has depth and a variety of values,

wipe and print small batch editions from their

plates, and use multiple plates and colors to

create intricate and one-of-a-kind prints.

Process Over Product

All projects are process-based, which affords children the

opportunity to engage in critical thought, collaborative

learning, and creative experimentation under the guidance of

an experienced professional artist and educator. PCA places

emphasis on the skills acquired during the process of creation,

rather than the importance of the final product. To that end,

students will often work collaboratively, and may create

temporary installations that will not go home with them at the

end of camp. While most campers will end the week with a final

artwork to take home, this cannot be guaranteed.

Photo Consent

Your child’s image may be photographed or reproduced on PF/

PCA promotional materials. You can unauthorize this practice on

the Emergency Information and Authorization Form.

Correspondence

PCA School communicates to clients primarily through email.

Please check your email regularly. You will receive a reminder

email 3-4 days prior to beginning of camp or class that will

include information about the instructor, location, and time.
