Summer Art Portfolio Classes
When should students begin preparing a college application art portfolio?
It is highly recommended to start SOON, BEFORE the summer of their junior year of high school. But they can start as late as the summer before senior year.
Why should artistically-minded students prepare a college application art portfolio?
An Art Portfolio makes them stand out from the crowd when applying to top-ranked universities, fine arts colleges or high schools.
What should go into an art portfolio?
An art portfolio is not simply a collection of artwork. It is a compilation of carefully selected and photographed images which demonstrate critical thinking, artistic and technical talent. It is a visual résumé of the dedication of the student designed to make them stand apart from the thousands of other applicants.
