Observational Drawing and Portfolio Development
This course offers high school students a unique opportunity to strengthen observational drawing skills and cultivate a personal point of view while gaining insight into building a portfolio and the art school admissions process.

Students explore traditional and innovative ways of rendering the observed world through a variety of styles and media. Taught by artist/educators Joseph Ray and Shadi Afsharnezhad and designed in collaboration with MassArt Admissions, the class encourages students to move beyond typical neutral studies and build skills in pursuit of a strong, singular personal vision and voice through focused drawing assignments and critiques.

Please note that there will be nude models and parental consent is required.
