Each summer, our goal at Pittsburgh Center for Arts and Media is to create outstanding art-focused camps for school-aged children (6-17). These camps are taught by talented, experienced teachers; supported by qualified, engaged assistants; and managed by an efficient, collaborative administrative team, all at our Shadyside campus.

Pittsburgh Center for Arts and Media offers classes year-round in a variety of mediums. Our Shadyside campus has ten fine arts studios ranging from ceramics to printmaking to metalsmithing to digital and analog media. Our approach to arts education provides a balance between process and product and student progress is measured in terms of personal artistic growth, the acquisition of new skills and the ability to think critically. From weekend and summer programs for youth to community-based art classes for adults, PCA&M has something for everyone.
