Art School Prep Club
This club is geared to students looking to successfully apply to undergraduate programs requiring an art portfolio. Suggested to students in 11th grade (but available to anyone), this course will bring students through the year and ready to apply to art programs by the late fall of their senior year. Students will spend the spring and fall exploring requirements, evaluating current work, creating digital and live application portfolios and essays, working on personal interview skills, and finally, applying to the programs of their choice. There will be time designated to work on artwork necessary to round out portfolios. Students will help each other through evaluations, research sharing, and accountability. Students will also share in the struggles and successes of other peers going through this very challenging preparation time. The amount of information and evaluations that can be shared in this friendly and helpful community will be an invaluable tool to move art students closer to their goals.
