Center for Creativity

Our Programs

The core program of the Workshop is an open "maker space" for University students, faculty, and staff. With a Pitt ID, members of the University community are welcome to come to this space to exercise their creative spirit and muscles. The Workshop provides large walls for writing, diagramming, or chalking; clay for shaping; tables and chairs for challenging conversations or quiet wordsmithing; paint; musical instruments; fabric and yarn; and more. 

As you make things here, expect people to come up to you and ask you how you do what you do. And as you see others make things, please feel free to ask them to show you how they do what they do. This is a community space and a place to make unexpected connections that can lead you to new discoveries or ways of seeing.

Drop by anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. to watch a student artist work on a project they’re interested in: ask questions about their process, the hows and whys of making, and give it a try yourself if you like! (We'll have all the equipment and materials you'll need on hand.)

February's focus is on digital art exploration using the Procreate app. If you've ever checked out Sinix Design's Paintsploration videos on YouTube and wondered how they do that, come check it out!
