Are you looking to apply to art college and develop your portfolio?

This portfolio preparation course is designed to help students successfully prepare for admission to the art department of colleges and universities in Canada and the USA.  Explored through the use of the sketchbook, collage, drawing, painting, sculpture, and print this course focuses on building your confidence, thinking creatively to develop your artistic and creative flair, exploring ideas and possibilities through a visual language. 

Presentation in the portfolio of a wide range of art projects in various techniques demonstrates the student’s readiness and interest in the future specialty in the field of art. There is an endless range of possibilities when it comes to patterns in the portfolio.

College Admissions officers will not be happy to see twenty of your self-portraits in your portfolio. Showing a large number of diverse projects in your portfolio, you send a message that you do not want to try new techniques and topics and do not like to experiment. This, of course, will not add you points.

The Pre-College Art Portfolio Preparation Course is an intensive experience in art that is offered during a week at night or on Saturdays in both the fall and spring semesters for Saint John high school students looking to prepare their art portfolios for the college admissions process.
