PCA’s Fine Arts programs take our students far beyond being art consumers. Our goal is to equip students to become confident creators of art. In order to create, they must learn to see, hear, and notice, to pay attention to notes and rhythms, to the subtle variations of value in the human face, to the differences of meaning in different facial expressions. In order to create, they must become problem solvers, able to transform what they see and hear in mind and spirit into art that others can see and hear.
“Just as blood is a fact of your physical body and nothing you invented, creativity is a fact of your spiritual body and nothing that you must invent.” — Julia Cameron
