(re)create yourself here. In August 2008, a collaborative effort between West Kentucky Community and Technical College, the City of Paducah, and other regional interests created Paducah School of Art and Design (PSAD) to serve the region and anchor Paducah’s Lower Town Arts District through the creation of a world-class art school. Having quickly outgrown its initial rented facilities downtown, West Kentucky Community and Technical College’s Paducah School of Art and Design has since completed a comprehensive campus totaling 46,200 square feet, including the Ceramics and Small Metals Building and Sculpture Building on Madison Street, and most recently the 2D and Graphic Design Building on Harrison Street in historic Lower Town. All of the school’s studios are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and resources supporting its programs in art, design, and multimedia. PSAD launched its first Master Artists Workshops program in Summer 2014. These workshops continue to feature nationally acclaimed artists and educators serving both regional audiences and students from across the country. The Summer 2019 workshop program features jewelry making, ceramics, painting, and fiber art. At Paducah School of Art and Design, a diverse mix of traditional and non-traditional students and studio artists from the community work side-by-side, sharing insights, experience and ideas to the mutual benefit of all. The Master Artists Workshop program and Community Education, and youth programs continue to broaden our scope and make our resources available to additional audiences. Whether working toward an Associate in Fine Arts degree in Visual Art, an Associate in Applied Science degree in Visual Communication and Multimedia, or simply seeking to expand your horizons, Paducah School of Art and Design is here to help make your vision a reality. West Kentucky Community and Technical College is a regionally accredited college and has been recognized by The Aspen Institute as one of the top ten community colleges in the nation four consecutive times, and twice as a Finalist with Distinction. PSAD’s Master Artists Workshop program contributes to Paducah’s emergence as a cultural destination and its designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Craft and Folk Art, while promoting national recognition for PSAD.
