 The Art Institute of Pittsburgh invites teens and adults to take their creative talents to the next level through its “GETCreative” courses, workshops, and special events. Participants may choose from a variety of courses designed for the pursuit of casual recreational learning or professional development designed for adults in creative careers.  The classes take place in The Art Institute of Pittsburgh’s professional kitchens, studios, and labs—providing hands-on training on industry standard tools and technology.

Creative writing workshops, an introduction to digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) photography, garment construction classes, comic book art drawing, game design workshops, and a day in the sushi kitchen are examples of the creative outlets “GETCreative” provides. Classes begin in September and are offered in the following areas: Art Foundations, Culinary Arts; Recording Arts; Creative Writing; Design; Photography; Textiles, Fashion and Jewelry; The Business of Art; or Software for Designers. Classes meet for as few as one—or as many as six—sessions.

“GETCreative has something for everyone who wants to get on a path to doing what they want to do for fun, or for life,” said George Sebolt, president of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. “Our seasoned instructors guide students to challenge their creativity in a relaxed environment. Teens can test out possible career paths while still in high school, and seasoned professionals can gain skills to help them advance in the creative marketplace.”
