Summer Art Intensie
Building a better portfolio

Diane Heath, Director, presents an informative presentation on building a better portfolio,  college entrance and scholarships. An informative interactive workbook is available to assist.

"The students who experience the summer intensive are well prepared for the rigor of art school. They demonstrate follow through of ideas from concept through completion. Motivation, questioning and curiosity assist them in battling through roadblocks and allow them to think outside of the box.

They have the entire package: 

narrative, technical know how and depth of concept.

I highly recommend this program for students considering an arts career."
