Senior Project

An advanced mentoring and portfolio development course designed to help earn top scholarship awards by developing a strong body of artwork. It must be taken in conjunction with Road to Scholarships (at no additional cost). Students will complete 10 pieces of artwork, as well as a visual research sketchbook that reflects a deeper understanding of learned concepts. A new, finished piece will be expected every class for critique as well as the previous week’s piece after applying feedback. Once completed you will be given letters of recommendation from the instructor, direct assistance applying to the colleges of your choice, and the opportunity to exhibit your work at a public gallery event.

 

Registrants will be contacted to schedule a meeting with instructor Rick Price prior to the first day to review the course commitments as well as the registrant's current portfolio. Students will be required to develop 2 proposals for conceptual themes for their body of course work prior to the first day.
