At OpenArt Studio, we believe in each student’s ability to think autonomously and conceptually. Working with our instructors, students will create one-of-a-kind portfolios that are founded in a strong technical use of visual media and highlight each student’s unique character. Instruction focuses on building a solid technical foundation and engaging in conceptual development.
The goal of the Portfolio Prep class is to create a comprehensive body of work that most students will use as a part of the admissions process to art, architecture, and design colleges and programs. Portfolios may also be used for AP Art class and as supplements in regular college applications.
The rigorous curriculum of the Portfolio Preparation class focuses on observational drawing, color theory, the elements of design, and other technical skills in visual media in addition to problem-solving, critical thinking and conceptual development. Students are given individually tailored feedback which allows them to create portfolios that reflect their unique interests, expression and skills.
*This class requires an informal meeting with the instructor before registration. Please feel free to call or email us to make an appointment.
