Art Studio: Portfolio Development

Art Studio

Art Studio is offered to campers ages 10-13 during Session 3: July 20th-July 31st

Portfolio Development

This course will give young artists a jump start on developing a personalized portfolio of art works. Artists will explore techniques that are age appropriate in various drawing, painting and sculptural materials all the while building confidence and unlocking their own artistic voice. Young artists can expect to create up to 5 finished artworks to add to their portfolio. Using art historical references, campers will brainstorm and create projects that are personal to them and receive the support necessary in realizing their completion. Along with creating strong, personalized, portfolio-worthy pieces, campers can be expected to participate in the critique process and familiarize themselves with appropriate vocabulary that will help them better articulate their vision.
