The final three weeks of Portfolio Prep, and we’re increasing the time to 2 hours for students to get the last of their display artwork completed.
We know the art school audition process can be exciting and stressful to students and parents alike. CAMP can help. Students in our Portfolio Prep class work on individual art projects in order to pick and choose from the best examples of their work to submit. All art materials are supplied. Plenty of guidance and encouragement, but please know, it's a "hands-off" art approach which is required by all art schools when submitting displays and portfolios (yep - our students do all their own work). Also students enrolled in Portfolio Preparation may take our test taking workshop and mock drawing tests for free.
Please note: 5 of our 6 students who applied to SOA or Berkeley this year were accepted, but CAMP in no way guarantees admission to a school. Main Instructor: Kathleen Fox (other CAMP Instructors will guide in specific art forms throughout the 10 weeks.)
