Portfolio Boot Camps

Are you planning on applying to an art school? Designed as intensive portfolio preparation classes, these workshops are open to 11th and 12th-grade students with previous high school drawing experience. Learning about the qualities of a well-rounded college admission portfolio, students leave class with finished pieces that will distinguish them as exceptional artists.

Classes meet for 6 hours, allowing students the luxury of uninterrupted studio time during which they can completely immerse themselves in their work. Students can choose to attend Summer Boot Camps, held Monday through Friday for two weeks, or Weekend Boot Camps, held for three consecutive Saturdays during the school year. Please view specific Boot Camp pages below for information regarding tuition, dates, times, registration and any material requirements. 

COVID-19 Updates
In order to ensure the continued safety of all of our students, faculty and staff, we have decided to host our programs online for summer 2020. Each of our programs has been adapted specifically for online learning to allow students to engage in hands-on, project-based learning from the safety of their homes. Our online programs are designed to be as interactive as possible and will include a mix of:
> Live face-to-face instruction and presentations with your instructors
> Time for hands-on art making and projects, both independently and in small groups
> Critique and discussion of projects with your instructors and classmates
> Virtual studio visits and guest lectures by practicing professionals
> Online resources such as virtual museum tours, site visits and demonstration videos
> Optional social activities allowing you to connect with your creative peers
> A virtual final exhibition to showcase the work you've created with family, friends and fellow pre-college classmates
