Congratulations to the PNCA|PENSOLE Design Intensive Class of Spring 2018!
May 21, 2018
On May 11, 2018, students enrolled in our PNCA | PENSOLE Design Intensive program showcased months of hard work during their Salon Exhibition and Final Presentations at the PENSOLE Academy here in downtown Portland, Oregon. Working on projects spanning a range of functions —athletic wear, footwear, functional apparel— and designed for a host of program sponsors like Nike, Vibram, and adidas, student teams presented their capstone projects, outlining their creative processes and rationales for their collaborative designs.

Congratulations! This has been another milestone term, and we look forward to seeing work from our new class this coming fall '18.
