Portfolio Prep Class

Our Art Portfolio Prep classes are for students grades 5 and up, preparing them to showcase their creative talent in a way that’s conducive to impressing admissions officers at Miami-Dade County Public Schools Art Magnet program, winning awards, securing scholarships, and top-ranked art colleges, and even, University level. In a group class,  6 to 12 students learn together in a relaxed atmosphere. During the school year, group classes are scheduled during after-school and weekend hours. Most classes meet once a week, and most are 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours long.

We concentrate on observational drawing skills using a variety of 2-D media and 3-D, specific subject matter such as still-life set-ups, objects, natural forms, portraits and the surrounding landscape and/or cityscape. Students learn numerous skills and techniques for representational drawing by focusing on and capturing what they see using contour line, value, shading and contrast to create a sense of form with understanding of space and volume. Composition is emphasized as students make purposeful decisions about how to organize space within a 2-dimensional picture plane.

Using both conventional and unconventional drawing and painting tools, students investigate the use of color as it relates to the development of symbolic and expressive form. Gesture and line quality are carefully considered as powerful means of expression. Working from observation, imagination, music, dreams and memory, students become comfortable thinking outside the box when it comes to their own creative possibilities with the goal of producing portfolio-quality work that reflects an individual style as well as understanding of foundational skills.
