Artist/Access

PF/PCA’s artist/access membership program allows you to use the equipment and facilities we have to offer access to our artist services department.

To make the most of your membership, consider adding an Access Package to your Access Membership. An access package is required in the Printmaking and Ceramics disciplines to gain access to the studios and equipment. Access packages will enable you to use PF equipment on a rent-free basis. Do you want to work across disciplines? Purchase a second access package of equal or lesser value to receive the second package at 1/2 price! 

 

Artist/Access Membership Benefits:

  • All Associate Member benefits
  • Pay-as-you-go access to PF/PCA equipment/facilities (Access is permitted if space is available and only after applicants have successfully demonstrated the ability to operate the equipment with an in-person demonstration)
  • Artist Services (professional development opportunities, networking opportunities, fiscal sponsorship program)
  • Free Associate Membership to Fractured Atlas (an arts service organization providing a wide range of resources and support) for one year, and a discount afterward.
