ABOUT THIS CLASS
In this 4-week Portfolio Development Course, students will be tutored in portfolio and art school preparedness. Each class will include an exploration of materials and techniques through the medium of Still Life to hone skills in drawing, pastels, cut-paper and collage. This studio work will serve as a guide for projects the student might embark on independently to develop a strong portfolio.
A portion of each class will also cover general portfolio requirements and information on interviews for art school. The following will be included: in preparation for interview, an introduction to artists whose work relates to the studio work being created; presentation of artwork; tips on photographing artwork and labeling Jpegs for online submissions.
Classes will include practical demonstrations and PowerPoint presentations.
