PSAD Begins Work on Kitchens Building

With funding from an agency bond through the State of Kentucky and Kentucky Community and Technical College System, along with matching funds raised from within the region, West Kentucky Community and Technical College is moving forward with renovations to the historic property known locally as the Kitchens Building. Demolition of a portion of the building and the entire interior of the remaining 25,000 square feet have been underway, setting the stage for actual renovations to begin in late October. The building is scheduled to open in January 2016and will house PSAD’s painting, drawing, photography, design, and multi-media programs.

WKCTC college president Dr. Barbara Veazey and Sherry Anderson, vice-president of learning initiatives, join members of the design team and KCTCS staff members, in a walk through of the Kitchens Building in early September.

PSAD Opens Sculpture Building

In addition to PSAD’s Open House Community Celebration on September 30, the art school has also hosted visits from the Kentucky Art Teachers Association during their annual meeting in Paducah, as well as a group of thirty National Art Honors students from Calloway County High School since opening our new sculpture building in August. Following a tour of the studios, these students broke out into groups for hands on activities in sculpture, ceramics and metalsmithing. Special thanks to Calloway County art instructor Sandy Sasso for providing her students an introduction to PSAD, our faculty, and our programs.
