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.

The C4C Workshop partners with the University Counseling Center to offer a series on the connections between making and mental wellness! 

Each weekly one-hour workshop centers on a different topic. Participants will try out a number of different hands-on art practices while focusing on meditation, self-expression, and other principles. Beginners and amateurs are very welcome! These workshops are free, and open to all Pitt students, faculty, and staff.
