Portfolio Preparation Workshop

This one-week portfolio preparation class is designed to give students the competitive edge they need when applying to college and university art programs. The workshop is taught by Jean Dahlgren, Associate Professor of Graphic + Media Design at the Sage College of Albany. Professor Dahlgren is also the founding partner at Art & Design Advisor (www.artanddesignadvisor.com), a website providing career advice, inspiration and portfolio preparation tips to students and their families. The workshop will teach students how to create a winning portfolio designed to impress both college admissions offices and art department faculty. During the morning portion of workshop meetings, visiting artists will speak to students about what should be included in their portfolios. Afternoons will consist of critiques of student work and demonstrations of proper techniques for matting, repairing, and completing artwork. The class meets Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm. The cost of this class is $275 and includes lunch and some supplies.
