Portfolio Workshop (ART 289)

A cornerstone course for Fine Art majors who have developed a body of original artwork in prior courses and/or in personal practice. The Fine Art AFA is equivalent to the first two years of study for most programs in the visual arts offering the BFA (Bachelors of Fine Art), the standard degree for visual arts professionals. This course offers students guidance in exploring options for continuing their education and preparing an appropriate entrance portfolio based on existing artwork. This course may also be suitable for students who already possess an undergraduate degree and wish to work with existing artwork to prepare a portfolio for entry level positions in the visual arts. Strategies for personal advancement will be developed based on the interests and abilities of each student. Portfolio presentation techniques addressed will include traditional and digital methods. Relevant standards and practices in the visual arts professions will also be explored. This course is subject to a course fee.
