Pacifico Silano

The most important thing I learned in my time at PCA&D was to always be challenging myself and never get complacent. I had an incredible amount of one on time with my professors because the program was so small and intimate, something that makes it an amazing place to study. A lot of those conversations I had with professors helped better prepare me for a career as an artist outside of school.
