I got to meet quite a few new and friendly people, and I got to experience so many pieces of art that were fascinating. It also gave me a chance to see what art in the city was like.
--"Drawing at the Portland Art Museum" student

The curriculum was perfect for the age group. The students were engaged and having a good time. My girls walked away wanting to take more classes at PCC.
--"Zombie Apocalypse" parent

The instructor was wonderful. She was very patient with a bunch of teens in the kitchen, and I loved her composure and discipline. My son really enjoyed the class and finding out about African culture. The hands-on "do it yourself" approach, rather than "watch and learn" approach was priceless. I loved how they messed up sometimes and it was all part of the learning process.
--"Taste of Africa Cooking Series" parent

Great opportunity to expose students to SAT test taking strategy.
--"SAT Prep" parent

My teen absolutely enjoyed the class. It was delivered in a very age appropriate manner, was fine, and FULL of useful information and insights. My teen walked away with a brand new sense of what it takes to be financially prepared for College.
--"Finances for Teens" parent

I had never tried archery before, as mentioned above, but I found it to be quite fun. It takes focus and strength, so it can also help relieve stress.
--"Archery" student

Both of my sons had a blast!
--"Minecraft Modders and Make Your First 3-D Video Game" parent

Great intro to the Japanese language and food. Wish class were longer.
--" Gohan Desu Yo: Intro to Japanese Language and Cuisine" parent

So much information was given and special effects that made the 3-hour class go by like it was 10 minutes. My daughter always walked out of the class with new information and experiences.
--"Introduction to Black and White Photo and Darkroom" parent

It was great! I had a wonderful time.
--"Make Your 3-D First Video Game" student
