International Applicants

Pilchuck is an informal nonprofit studio art center that offers workshop-style courses for artistic development. Participation in the summer program is not matriculation in a formal educational program.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

Because Pilchuck is not an accredited institution, applicants may travel to the United States as a visitor in order to participate in the summer program. Upon acceptance, we can also provide you with a letter that may help facilitate visa requests at an embassy and also withentry into the United States. Citizens of countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program may not require a tourist visa for travel to Pilchuck.

LANGUAGE

English is the language of instruction. Though students need not be fluent in English, they should have basic language skills in order to communicate effectively.
