Becoming a PCA&D Student We Are Artists & Designers Our Lives in Art

Life = Art

You see things differently, and so do we. Step onto our campus and into our studios and you will immediately discover that among your faculty and peers, every one of them takes the responsibility of being an artist very seriously.

At PCA&D, the studio becomes your laboratory for exploring the questions, cultures, and markets that drive society. You’ll make art within an intellectual framework that gives it a life force and creates influence.

Community with Character

You’ll love our small city that encourages artistic expression and values diversity. Entrepreneurial spirit freely flows across Lancaster City through our independent boutiques, farm-to-table restaurants, and re-imagined work spaces. Step right off our campus onto Gallery Row — and into neighborhoods filled with art galleries, artist studios, and creative professionals. With more than 125 arts organizations, galleries, studios, museums, theaters, orchestras, makerspaces, performance venues, poetry sites, and public installations … art is always in the air.
