CE Community Education


design.labs introduces artists to key concepts, methods, and tools in design with inspiring projects in a supportive atmosphere. Students focus on the application of design principles and procedures in the development of products, services, and the built environment. In each class, students will develop projects individually and collaboratively, create models and presentations either by manual construction or in digital form, maintain a design log and engage in discussions about the utility and sustainability of their and their peers’ designs. This program focuses on integrating design with concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Each session is staffed by one instructor and one or more teaching assistants. Classes are capped at 18 participants so students have individual attention while they are at PNCA. Classes start at 9:00am and end at 4:00pm and staff provides supervised care between the hours of 8:30–9am and 4:00-4:30pm free of charge. During camp hours several staff members are on site to ensure the safety and security of all students on campus.
