Gr. 10 - 12 Senior Fine Art/Portfolio Prep

 

MONDAYS 6:30 – 9:00 pm Sept – June

 

$135/month (not including materials) 40 Classes. Average 4 classes per month.

Limit 6 students per class.

 

(NOTE: The first ½ hr. of class time is devoted to independent sketching/drawing skills)

 

This course is designed to build an oeuvre of work that will eventually be used in portfolios for College and University level Art study for prospective entrants. Once foundation skills are built (Gr.10/11) emphasis is place upon on the student’s own creative process which is guided rather than prescriptive. While there will be time to start new projects, Grade 12 students will focus on effective selection, arrangement, modification (where necessary) of past pieces, and the personal essay in time for submission in March. This is an opportunity to have weekly, professional critique with individualised attention to detail for the best chance of a successful application. Expect 10 hrs+ extra studio time requirements at this stage of portfolio development to be done at home or during open studio.
