This summer portfolio course is the perfect way to build up a portfolio step by step over the 10 weeks, for a range of application levels, such as Foundation Course, Degree, Masters, professional development or a career change.
On the 10 Week Summer Portfolio Course, you will be introduced to a range of materials, processes and techniques, which is ideal for both beginners and the more advanced client. Much emphasis is placed on idea development and concept building. You will be given professional support throughout this process, which will lead to selecting some ideas to develop further into a few serious outcomes.
The London Art Portfolio Preparation courses are a fantastic way to meet new people in the creative arts. The 10 Week Summer Portfolio Course will not only extend your knowledge of Critical and Contextual Studies whilst deepening your understanding of historical and contemporary art and design. Drawing and research visits to Museums and contemporary art galleries in London play an important part in the LAP curriculum programme.
