Preparing for College Scholarships?
Summer Art Academy was developed to help advanced students prepare for college scholarship opportunities and propel career-minded students of the visual arts. Two classes were developed with the guidance of visual art teachers from Bak Middle School of the Arts and Dreyfoos School
of the Arts.
A student portfolio is a vital part of admission and scholarship decisions. This week-long workshop will assist students in the thoughtful selection and arrangement of pre-existing artwork. The instructor will make recommendations for work that needs to be added for the best outcome.
Emphasis will be placed on:
• Work process
• Technical and analytical skills
• Time management
Be prepared for the portfolio review
and admission process:
DAY 1: Introduce Yourself – As an artist, student, and visionary
Day 2: Critical Thinking – Is your portfolio complete?
Day 3: Digital Portfolio – How to clean up and post your work
Day 4: The Magical Order – What goes first, last, and in between
Day 5: Mock portfolio review session
