College Portfolio Preparation (Saturday)

with Anna Neis

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 17, 2022 at 10:30 am
1 additional session on Sep 17, 2022

Ages: 15-18 (High School Students)

GENERAL REGISTRATION OPENS 7/11/22 @ 1:00pm

Our college portfolio preparation course is designed to help students build a well-rounded body of work that has its base in technical skills. We focus on teaching strong drawing and painting skills while encouraging students to place themselves creatively in their work to produce a unique portfolio.

Whether your child plans to attend an art school or hopes to supplement their college application by showing their passion, this program has you covered.

Our students have attended ivy league schools, schools of architecture, and some of the most prestigious art colleges both in the United States and abroad.

These institutions include but are not limited to the following:

Art Schools in the US: Rhode Island School of Art & Design, The New School's Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, Fashion Institute of Technology, Cooper Union, Maryland Institute College of Art, Ringling College of Art & Design, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Schools with Art Programs: Cornell University, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, Syracuse University, WU St. Louis, Rutgers

International Art Schools: Concordia University, Parsons PARIS

Students create both works from observation in addition to creative pieces from imagination. Rigorous training ensures our student's breadth of knowledge in classical forms and art history is vast.

Having a base of training in Academic realism allows students to use their creativity through a well-informed lens. We want our students to be able to go to college feeling prepared for the journey ahead, ready to complete any project thrown at them their first year.

We also provide college seminars to familiarize students with their application options.

This program is for students who want to learn classical art, advance their skills during the application process and prepare themselves for the rigorous College experience.

We are here as professional instructors, guiding the student through successes and failures in their work. However, it is up to the student to prioritize their portfolio and other prep they are doing to prepare for college.
