Workshop Descriptions:

Portfolio Enhancement Workshop options: Choose One 

Digital Drawing

Digital Drawing Foundation will focus on creating artwork through the use of technology such as a tablet, smartphone, or computer software. While work created from observation is a key component to a portfolio, this can be created using technology. Spend the morning creating digital drawings for your portfolio!

Foundation Drawing

Foundation Drawing is a comprehensive crash course in observational drawing. Concentrating on the formal elements of line, shape, value, and texture, these drawings from observation will focus on figure/ground relationships, relative position and proportion, perspective, and light in relation to volume. Drawing from observation is a staple in all art college portfolios!

 
Day One Workshop: College Essay Writing, How to Use Common App, and Slideroom

No matter where you are in the college essay writing process, this workshop will provide you with the tools you need to show admissions counselors who you are through your writing. Whether you’re still brainstorming potential essay topics or already working on your final draft, you’ll learn how to stand out, what to avoid, and how to self-edit before you hit “submit.”

If the technical side of your college application is holding you back from hitting “submit,” we’re here to help. We’ll walk you through how to navigate the Common App so you don’t have to muddle through solo. We’ll also show you how to create a polished and professional digital portfolio presentation through Slideroom that’s sure to impress any admissions officers.
