Creating an artist portfolio is an integral part of being an established visual artist. This Major will allow budding young artists to begin their personal portfolio or perfect an existing portfolio that showcases their passion for the fine arts. 

Portfolio Development students spend their days in the studio creating new pieces in a variety of media and sharing and reflecting on their body of work as a whole. As students create new artworks to add to their portfolios, they focus on demonstrating a breadth of artmaking styles and an understanding of materiality. Under the guidance of an experienced arts educator and professional artist, and with additional support from fellow focused young artists, students receive personalized feedback and direction toward building a body of work that displays their knowledge and abilities and can be used for future applications.

At their end of the session, students have the opportunity to celebrate their work by participating in the Art Parade, Open Studios day, or a celebration with their class in-studio. This is a course for experienced young artists who are serious about the development of their portfolios. Students are asked to submit a short statement of purpose shortly after enrollment.
