Portfolio Boot Camps

Are you planning on applying to an art school? Designed as intensive portfolio preparation classes, Portfolio Boot Camps 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.
