This two-week course will give aspiring artists a head start in portfolio work while building the confidence and skills needed to succeed in an art-focused high school. Guided by professional Teaching Artists, you will refine your distinguished style as you create several finalized artworks including live model sculptures and still life sketches, all of which will satisfy the requirements of most fine art institutional admission policies. Develop your creative prowess as you brainstorm ideas, observe a variety of inspirational references, experiment with 2D and 3D mediums., and photograph your finals works for your portfolio. You will also gain the tools necessary to excel in an advanced academic setting. Learn how to engage in peer critiques using appropriate terminology, mock entrance interviews, thesis writing, and turning your thoughts into a well written artist statement.
