Regarding putting a portfolio together it depends on what area of art interests you — no point attending a year-long mix media portfolio course that covers animation, photography, sculpture, etc. This course will encompass all of these things. The first step in developing a portfolio is to create a list of first choice and back-up colleges that you are planning to apply to and contact each of their admissions departments to obtain their particular portfolio and admissions requirements. It will inspire you to make things from found objects, take numerous reference photographs, be visually aware, to explore everyday items — be excited by the mundane and, above all, be inspired and absorbed by your drawing.

Led by artist Fiona King, the purpose of this week course is to instruct students in the preparation and production of a portfolio of work that will cater for entry into third level art colleges. Through continual emphasis on idea generation, group discussion, evaluation and practical application, students will identify and clarify the process involved in producing a body of art work. The students will demonstrate how each of the ideas they generate is connected and influences the work to follow through a visual or conceptual association. The visual research will be presented through notebooks, worksheets and resolved pieces.
