Our Portfolio course is tailored to the needs of students who are ready to apply to art-related university programs, including fine art, graphic design, animation, and architecture.
In this class, we focus on improving key skills, creating higher-level works of art, and pulling everything together into a portfolio that can be used in the university application process. The exact approaches taken are tailored to the needs of the student based on what program or programs they are applying to.
The instructors for this class are all professional artists who have excelled within their chosen fields and have graduated from major art institutions in Canada, the U.S., and Russia. These instructors serve not just as teachers, but as mentors.

The report will include an approximate amount of hours needed to perfect the portfolio, recommended artwork, strengths and weaknesses as well as personalized recommendations from the teacher. The student and teacher will also develop goals and an action plan to follow-through.
