Portfolio Development

For students that are considering applying to an art program, a portfolio can be a deciding factor. In this class, students will work on a collection of work that represents their creativity, mastery of technique, artistic abilities and development as an artist.

Guidance in understanding goals and interests while compiling pieces for the portfolio will be a focus during this class. 

 

Exhibiting and Presentation

Presentation is an important part of exhibiting your work. We will look at proper presentation which will include framing, photographing work, labeling and pricing. Students will also write an artist statement.

 

Students will curate their own exhibit, deciding on content, exhibiting and promotion. They will learn how to hang and light an exhibition. The hanging date will be November 16th from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Art competitions are a wonderful way to gain experience as an artist.  We will look at upcoming juried exhibitions and the process of entering work for competitions. This will include developing professional slides and digital images as well as the proper application process.
