Taught by Lauren Gueli

This class is for youth ages 16-19.

A portfolio is a standard requirement for any college or university art application. Most schools require 12-20 pieces of your best and most recent artwork.This course will give students the opportunity to review college application requirements, receive guidance on how to select the right art program, prepare admission portfolio pieces, and learn about the variety of career options in the visual arts. The first week involves an assessment of your portfolio to determine the direction for future work in this class. In the following weeks, students will individually define their assignments based on the specific demands of their portfolio. Students will both revise and improve existing artwork and produce new formal artwork with individual coaching from the instructor geared towards the requirements and expectations of today’s collegiate art programs.

*NO CLASS 11/28*

Supplies to bring:
Sketchbook (no larger than 9×12), Faber-Castell Graphite Pencil Tin (2H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B) , and any existing Portfolio pieces.
