Summer Camps

Let your creativity shine in the summertime!
Summer Art Camps & High School Immersions return for our 38th Summer.

Many of our summer programs combine visual arts with other creative mediums like performance, literature, architecture and science under the direction of teaching artists who are working professionals in these creative fields. We’re committed to offering a creative outlet from painting and sculpture to media arts where the Youth Media Program enables our students to access, analyze and create media for themselves. 

Most of our programs take place at the PCA School, an entire building dedicated to arts education but we utilize the entire PCA Shadyside Campus including our contemporary galleries where many students will experience the 2016 Fiber Arts International Exhibition. Making use of all our organization has to offer, distinguished Immersion programs in media take place at the Filmmakers School on location in Oakland.
