Get ahead of the curve by learning essential portfolio skills, tips and techniques to produce a body of work that will start your journey towards art school. Working with a dynamic range of approaches and materials you’ll create work in paint, print, photography, drawing and collage, while learning about the importance of development and punchy presentation in order to create a knock-out folio for that first step as an artist!

Week 1 – intro / object interrogation – drawing, painting, sculpture and photography exercises.

Week 2 – producing quick ‘concertina’ strips of printmaking, collage, negative drawing and stencil drawing from the source material in week 1.

Week 3 – self portrait ‘moods’ in a range of drawing and painting materials, approaches and formats

Week 4 – ‘alter ego’ exercise (complementing the self portrait exercises) using found objects, materials, fabrics etc., create an alternative identity/character which will be explored through photographs, drawing, painting, collage and print.

Week 5 – ‘alter ego’ exercise (continued) and/or shoebox exercise (creating photos of a ‘film scene’ that your alter ego character might inhabit, by constructing a model inside a shoebox, shining a torch inside and photographing).

Week 6 – Finishing and mounting work for portfolio ‘presentation’.

Learning Outcomes:
– Gaining an insight and understanding (through practice) into the principles of constructing an art portfolio, in particular the notions of clear developmental progression and flow, taking each idea through a number of experimental approaches towards coherent outcomes/final pieces.

– Gaining an understanding (through practice) into the importance of presentation of work, ultimately ‘curating’ a strong, coherent and cohesive folio for the viewer.

– Gaining a range of new skills and practical approaches to art making that will be evidenced in the variety of works produced.

– Beginning to identify personal strengths within specific areas of art making and starting to nurture and enhance those.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Portfolio Class for Young People are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
