London Art Portfolio offers a 2 week Summer Portfolio Course programme that can step-by-step build up and add to your portfolio preparation.
The 2 Week Summer Portfolio Course is an ideal way, to start working towards the preparation of your art and design portfolio, or kick start that career change you’ve always wanted. It will give you the perfect way to start a mini-portfolio project. You will be shown various stages to work through and build upon, with the help of specialist art and design tutors.
The group size is kept small to ensure high quality and focused support through this introductory 2-week summer portfolio preparation programme. This summer portfolio school will enable you to begin to create a focused portfolio. This in turn will increase your confidence and direction and help you decide which specialist area you may wish t specialise for either further or higher education, i.e. a Foundation Course in Art and Design or a Degree application.
In addition, this 2 Week Summer Portfolio Course is useful to add and enrich a school project or coursework. You will be able to utilise the skills learnt on the 2 Week Summer Course for future project development too.
Some students at London Art Portfolio follow up their two-week personal development on the Summer Portfolio Course with one-one tutorials to extend and explore their skills and techniques further. Beginners to advanced levels are welcome.
