Students will gain an understanding of artwork required in developing a diverse, yet cohesive body of artwork. This class will review how to present a portfolio for school admission/employment, and how to photograph individual art pieces. Artwork will be reviewed with recommendations for establishing and maintaining a solid, unified body of work. Individual drawings will be completed in class that will fill any possible gaps in students’ portfolios. Ages 16+. All materials provided.
Monday July 25-Friday July 29 (five consecutive days), 3pm-5pm
