Life Drawing and Portfolio DevelopmentFor Grades 9 through 12
Life Drawing and Portfolio Development is an in-depth class for high school students taught by a professional artist. Students work to develop skills and explore techniques and are encouraged to broaden their approach towards a personal vision. The class explores traditional and innovative ways of rendering the human figure. Students work in a variety of media and explore different styles. The program benefits students interested in developing their portfolio as well as those who are curious to learn more about the visual arts and design. For those interested in art school, the class also includes a studio visit by an admissions counselor who will help demystify the application process to art school. The course serves as a complement to high school art education.
Please note that there will be nude models and parental consent is required.
