The Design Center at PCA&D
In 2010, PCA&D opened the new 9,200 square foot Design Center, which consolidates and enhances all of the digital aspects of the College under one roof. This means that students from all disciplines (graphic design, illustration, photography, and fine arts) will be able to connect their creative energies in one dynamic environment. The Design Center opened on September 9, 2010.
The College would not be able to enhance its curriculum and facilities -- and build the Design Center -- without a sound financial foundation. PCA&D continues to exert prudent oversight of all its resources and thus, it remains a financially stable non-profit educational leader.
