    Preparing Your Portfolio Online Information Session
    The portfolio is an incredibly important part of the admissions process for studio-based programs. Join this info-session to get tips and tricks on how to apply and how to build a strong portfolio. Learn about what we look for in a strong portfolio, what to include, how to strengthen it, and helpful do’s and don’ts before you hit submit. We'll also take you into SlideRoom and help you understand the portfolio submission process. 

    Portfolio Clinics at Home:
    “Portfolio Clinics at Home” is designed for learners between the ages of 15-19 interested in pursuing a creative pathway towards postsecondary education. We are excited to work alongside you in developing your studio art and design skills.  This series of workshops encompasses all aspects of the art and design process; these may range from research and conception, to problem solving, to finalizing and sharing.
