Art Portfolio Preparation

303. Art Portfolio Preparation
Rising 11th and 12th graders

This course is for students who are planning to submit an art portfolio to colleges in anticipation of majoring in art, as well as students who have had an interest in art and would like to submit a portfolio with their college applications as a unique example of an outside interest.  There are great ways to develop a body of your work to present as an addendum to your high school résumé.  Intended art majors/minors need specific material in their portfolios and individual schools have different requirements.  We will review whatever you have and work individually to develop and fine tune your portfolio so that it stands out and sparkles next to the thousands that admissions counselors see.  Students are requested to bring completed art or works in progress to the first class.
