Summer Session: Developing a Visual Arts Portfolio
July 17 – 21

Designed for experienced high school artists, this workshop will explore the process of developing of a refined portfolio. Quality, breadth and concentration topics will be examined through digital presentations, discussions and studio work that will assist students as they begin to understand the competitive requirements for college admissions and AP testing. Students will leave with a greater understanding of what is necessary to create a successful portfolio and potential finished portfolio pieces. Emphasis will be placed on creative problem solving and how to select a topic that can support a sustained investigation. Group critiques and activities will be conducted with an emphasis on process and the development of a theme or idea that can generate continued investigation. The Session concludes with a reception for friends and family which will showcase the students’ work.

Summer Session: Art Lab I

Areas of focus include: painting, photography, sculpture, and book arts.

Summer Session: Art Lab II

Experimentation is supplemented with discussion and critique, and geared toward students revealing their personal creative voice. This is the perfect opportunity for those interested in pushing their creative boundaries and advancing their work, as well as those interested in creative experimentation and learning new artistic processes.
