10 Wk Art Portfolio Preparation Course

A great course that leads to success!

The 10 Week Art Portfolio Preparation Course primarily helps you prepare a successful portfolio for direct entry onto Degree and Masters levels courses. We can also help you with your next step professional opportunity too!


We deliver onsite studio art and design portfolio preparation courses, online portfolio courses, and 1-1- tuition. This applies to all of our art classes. We also deliver a Hybrid approach which allows more flexibility. This can be very helpful for many reasons: lifestyle choices,  you may be living in between countries or places, you may be too unwell to travel but can still join the group and continue your studi es online, or you may need to keep your accommodation and living costs down. We understand your personal decisions the choice is yours. We can teach and reach out to anyone in the world. What we do require is full attendance, whether it be onsite or online.

We offer a range of Portfolio Course start dates. Ideally, we aim for all students to start on the same date. We understand that sometimes applicants have unique circumstances, so we try our best to consider your application needs. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to allow late entries after the first few weeks, which will also require consultation. Late entries will be required to study on some Fridays to receive the full teaching programme. Please check the dates on this page.

When you complete a Portfolio Course at LAP, the aim is for you to leave with a creative, innovative portfolio, well thought through and well presented for a range of personal goals. Full attendance is required, and all students need to follow the course programme closely and be willing to extend work in their time.

Portfolio Course:  You will complete the course with a prepared portfolio that will present a range of hands-on drawing skills alongside 2D and 3D design skills.  This is all essential for successful University and work applications. LAP students can draw and design by hand and use various computer-aided design programmes. Personal goals and aspirations are considered throughout. One of the aims of the 10-Week Portfolio course is to complete two very different Portfolio Projects to demonstrate your strengths, a broad range of ideas and skills. You are taught how to build up and extend your art and design vocabulary to prepare for a potential online live interview and a possible additional written request.

One-One Mentoring: A very bespoke portfolio. Clients can contact us for specific portfolio preparation. This can focus on specific University or professional portfolio requirements, i.e  Physical Portfolio, hands-on skills, Digital Portfolio, Digital skills, professional design project, Fine Art Gallery exhibition support, Curatorial advice or particular creative arts business support.

We help you design a portfolio that can meet your individual needs and requirements.
