An advanced mentoring and portfolio development course designed to help earn top scholarship awards by developing a strong body of artwork. This class requires Portfolio Development or a session of the Summer Intensive as a prerequisite. 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 at every class for critique as well as the previous week’s piece after applying feedback. Once completed you will exhibit your work at a public gallery opening, be given letters of recommendation from the instructor, and receive 1-1 assistance in applying to the colleges of your choice.


​​Registrants will be contacted to schedule a meeting with the instructor prior to the first day of class to review the course commitments as well as the student’s current portfolio. Interview meetings are anticipated to occur on September 1.

Students will be required to develop 2 proposals for conceptual themes for their body of course work prior to the first day.

Students are required to bring a 9”x12” sketchbook.

Scholarships are available to those in economic need. To apply for a scholarship, please complete a Scholarship Application Form and send it to .
