When applying to competitive colleges it is important to stand out.  An art portfolio is unique and brings out your individuality and creativity, which college administrators are seeking.  iArt Institute will create projects based on each student’s personality, strengths, interests, and major the student will be pursuing.

Course Description

This course is for students with little or no art background who would like to have an art supplement when applying to college as a way to boost their profile and make them stand out in the college application process.

How Long Does It Take and How Many Portfolio Pieces Will I Create?

Students need not have any prior experience in art making. iArt recommends students create minimally 12 works that demonstrate a range of media, techniques and subject matter.

The class runs twice a week for 30 minutes to one hour for each meeting, depending on the student’s needs.  Projects take about 1 to 2 weeks to complete. Some types of work students will create are:

  • Observational Drawings
  • Visualize using Imagination
  • Create an artistic style that reflects a unique student voice
  • Provocative portfolio presentation of artwork that helps students stand out.

Creativity is indispensable to be successful in all majors and careers.  We will nurture our students’ creativity in a relatively short period of time, while simultaneously helping to relieve the anxiety that comes with the college application process.  The College Art Supplement can be geared to a student’s anticipated college major as well.  The portfolio will demonstrate creativity and skill that can also be helpful while in college.
