"Artists. Designers. Makers. And change-makers.
For over 100 years, visionary artists from Pacific Northwest College of Art have shaped the cultural foundations of this city, the Pacific Northwest, and this country. Artists and teachers such as Manuel Izquierdo, Mike Russo, Lucinda Parker, MK Guth, Arvie Smith, Barry Pelzner, George Johanson, Paul Missal, Sherrie Wolf, and Lee Kelly, among so many others.
We are proud of those who led the way, who challenged norms, and who advocated for art and artists as essential to our identity and our community.
PNCA faculty and students have always been rule-breakers and culture shakers. They still are. Here at PNCA, we cultivate habits of the eye, the mind, and the hand through rigorous practice. We use the tools and ideas we learn in the classroom to actually make things. We call this "studio thinking" and we believe it is at the heart of transformative change."
