Students will view examples of exemplary student art portfolios for college entrance. Students will revisit past artworks and curate their selection for a portfolio for future applications. Students will write personal goals for their art portfolio. Students will learn to create a written proposal for an artwork. Students will identify inspiration, themes, techniques, and/or materials as the basis for a new artwork. Students will build independent art concepts and produce a new piece of artwork. Students will learn how to document their artwork for digital submission. Students will provide peer feedback and self-reflect.
I have previously taught at the undergraduate level and, in addition, successfully guided many students through the college admissions process as a high school teacher. With previous training in IB Visual Arts and Cambridge curriculum, I also have 12+ years experience working with students in high school. My MAAE and MFA make me exceptionally qualified to help guide your students through the process of preparing a portfolio of artwork for college admission and/or for summer enrichment programs. Please reach out to me if you have additional questions!
Each week, extra time required (outside of class) to complete different stages of the art portfolio process. Some weeks, students will be more heavily engaged in creating artwork. Depending on the students, their personal interests, goals, and motivation, artwork production can take anywhere from 3-8 hours of work over the course of one week.
Portfolio of completed artworks (six or more are recommended as a starting point) Digital camera Art materials of student's choosing
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
