OK, I understand.

What to know when taking in-person classes

Review our information regarding in-person classes and workshops on campus.


PCA&D does not own a parking lot. Parking on Prince Street is free on weekdays after 6:00 pm. There is non-metered parking within two blocks of the college, and parking garages on Water, Prince, and Chestnut Streets. Parking meters and pay-by-space kiosks are enforced during the daytime and on Saturdays. The Lancaster Parking Authority owns and operates these meters and the Water and Prince Street garages. For more information, visit:

building entry

Enter through our main doors located at 204 N. Prince Street. On the first day of your classes, you will be greeted by the Center for Creative Exploration staff. After that date, the front desk guard will be monitoring entering students and will be available for any immediate questions.

student id

Most students taking multi-session classes will be given a student ID card. Please keep this in a safe location and bring it with you every time you come to campus. Workshop students are asked to wear a temporary sticker badge while they are on campus.

covid requirements

  • Don’t Ignore Symptoms
    Before coming to campus, please monitor any symptoms you or your student may have. If you have any concerns about you or your student’s health, please do not come to campus.
  • Complete Checklist Before Each Class
    Adult and pre-college students must complete our Health Monitoring checklist prior to arriving on campus.
  • Masks Required
    A mask covering both the nose and mouth is required for entry in the building and must be worn properly the entire time you are in the building. Please use a cloth (not mesh) face covering, and we (as well as the CDC) advise against use of masks with valves or vents.
  • No Snacks
    As our Young Artists classes are only 90 minutes long, snacks are not permitted (we can make accommodations upon request).


To know if your class is canceled due to weather or an emergency, check and for closing information. We will also post on our Facebook and Instagram social media channels (@pcad_ce). Canceled classes will be rescheduled and students will be notified of the make-up day at their next regularly scheduled class.

Class notifications or adjustments will always be sent to the email address which you used to register for the class or workshop.
