The Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) invites you to find the artist within yourself at its Summer Open House.

Have you considered a career in the arts? Consider attending the Admissions Open House on Friday, 27 June. The Open House will run from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Take this opportunity to meet the faculty and current students and some alumni. Learn about financial aid, housing options, and pre-college offerings for high school students. The application fee will be waived for those who apply during the Open House. Register online or call the admission office at 800-689-0379, ext. 1001.

The college will also offer summer classes as part of the “Artful Living” courses. The course will include Tortilla and Salsa Making, Create an Architectural Sketchbook and Summer Fruit Pies, to name just a few. Kurt Aspland will instruct the “Create an Architectural Sketchbook.” In this class you will have the opportunity to sketch the historically rich and beautiful architecture of Lancaster City. Louise Heisey will teach “An Introduction to Sewing.” The Artful Living courses are just a few of the many courses offered at the College this summer. For a full listing, view the catalog here.

“Selected Artwork from the BFA Program” is the summer exhibit at the College. It is a showcase of various media from the PCA&D students. The exhibit will run through 1 August.

In August David Snyder, one of the founders of PCA&D, will posthumously exhibit. His works will be shown in the “Print Invitational” which is scheduled for 15 August through 26 Spetember.

The College and Hershey Gardens have worked together to offer an exhibit titled “Four Surreal Seasons.” Senior illustration majors at PCA&D have created several four-paneled, surrealistic paintings roughly 4 ½ feet tall each that are rooted in the tradition of "exquisite corpse." The exhibit will be on the walkway of the Children’s Garden and will continue through 28 September. Hershey Gardens does charge an admission.

The PCA&D is located at 204 N Prince Street. Admission is free and the exhibits are open to the public. Regular gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. It is closed weekends and for the July 4th holiday. PCA&D is handicapped accessible.
