Portfolio Preparation (Teen)
Whether you are applying to college, University, or another art and design based course, you will need a portfolio to showcase your work, ideas and skills. Choosing what to include in your portfolio can be difficult because there are no definite rules or instructions, so it's something that only you can really decide. Most art programs will request artworks that fall into 3 different categories; observational art, personal art or a home exam. Sometimes only works from one of these categories is required, whereas sometimes you will need to submit all three types.

The most important thing is to always check exactly what the college/university you are applying to requires. Guidelines differ between each course and each each school.

Students will bring their favorite stories to life as they become familiar with professional illustrator techniques including, pen and ink drawings, watercolor paintings, and cartooning! Drawing inspiration from the likes of Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, Roz Chast, Saul Steinberg and Eric Carle, young artists will build a vocabulary using these techniques.

Students will sketch and brainstorm their own visual stories starting with simple sketches and working their way up to a sequential narrative from their imagination. We will address methods of drawing from both observation and imagination, tying into the fields of comics, illustration, fine art, character design, and animation.
