i've been learning a lot about everything here at pacific northwest college of art. so far the professors are excellent at introducing students to a wide range of techniques, theories, and histories. here at pnca, you'll find that even the math, science and english are art oriented and include art projects, often times in place of final exams. the classes cover interesting and exciting topics, such as gods, heroes and monsters and history of laughter. i learned more each week here than i did in a semester at public university.

    It's a pretty great school. There aren't many students so the community is pretty close. The teachers are always willing to help and give great advice.

    Too much talking! As a painting major, I expected to do some painting. Our time was spent critiquing and debating; you don't get better at art by arguing about it.

    A very successful,small school that likes to work with each student individually. Each member of the staff is very welcoming, and know you by name within the first semester. A very diverse, creative, competitive community of students who are very accepting, supportive of each other, and enthusiastic at what they want to be doing.
