Teen Portfolio Prep [Online Class]

Teen Portfolio Prep [Online Class]
Ages: 13 yrs. to 18 yrs.
Preparing your art portfolio for college admissions is a lengthy, and often stressful, process.  It is also vitally important for those high school students interested in taking their passion for visual arts to a whole new and exciting level. This class will provide valuable insight into the steps involved and strategies to consider. The instructor has a long record of successfully advising teens on their portfolios, resulting in placements at many leading arts programs including RISD, MICA, SAIC, SVA, Pratt, Parson's, FIT, The University of the Arts, and Tyler School of Art. There will be group discussions (including an information session available for parent and child), as well as highly individualized instruction and guidance. All materials provided, but students should bring their own sketchbook.
