• Associated Artists - Art Careers

    The Visual Arts Career Orientation Program (VACOP), presented by the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, is a pre-professional experience that provides high school students with an opportunity to work with practicing Pittsburgh-based artists.  Students will tour studio spaces, learn new techniques from teaching artists, and hear about different career paths in the arts.  Experiences may include tours of local universities, community art spaces, and cultural institutions.  Students will experiment with a wide range of processes and media that artists are exploring today.  VACOP sessions occur 10:00am - 2:00pm on the third Friday of each month, with a winter break December and January.  Each session will be in a different location, with a different Pittsburgh-based artist.
