Portfolio Preparation Program
Most university/college visual art programs or applied arts programs (design, illustration ect) require a portfolio of the applicant’s artwork as part of their application requirements. Our Portfolio Preparation Program is designed specifically to help our students develop their portfolio. The program consists of twenty-two instructional assignments and at least three self-directed assignments. Our goal is to help our students create thirty projects that may be edited down to fifteen to twently of their strongest works for their admissions portfolio presentation.
Instructors of this program must have a degree in fine arts and an understanding of current university admission requirements and curricula.

The basic portfolio course consists of drawing, painting, and sculpture. Fees start at $2,400.00 for 48 classes. Private tutoring is available.
You may request a special program designed for entry into a certain University, or a special field of business or you may request one on one private portfolio lessons.
