Schedule

Pricing will vary depending on several factors:

  • evaluation of the applicant, their work and skills, as well as proximity in time to application deadlines.
  • A program is developed for each student, including, but not limited to group and/or one on one classes, courses, studio hours, and follow up interviews.
  • Compliance on the part of the student with the program agreed to and the assignments from week to week. 
  • Applicants should consider starting no later than their sophomore year in HS. 

Most college applicants are required to attend the studio twice a week for a total of 5 hours. Applicants will need to own art materials that will be used both at home and in the studio. 


PRIVATE CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.


Art Colleges or Universities with Art related programs and careers, specifically focus on the visual arts, specialize in anything from photography, painting, drawing, graphic design, illustration, fashion, industrial design, and more. We've successfully prepared students for several of these schools, from Architecture in FIU to RISD, the number 3 or 4 Art and Design College in the world, as well as for many other schools. 


All these schools require that you present a body of work called an Art Portfolio. Requirements vary from school to school. Some require that you work with a specific prompt or word, besides your artwork. Your work is the way you show your skill at using the languages of art to express who you are, what you believe in, what you care about, what moves you. Each year these colleges and universities evaluate thousands of applicants.


We work with you and your family to help you gain acceptance to your dream school, but you need to start early. It's easy to make "pretty" art, but making significant artwork that will stand out from the thousands of portfolios takes time and a lot of thought and creative power. 


HOW TO GET ACCEPTED TO THE TOP ART & DESIGN COLLEGES

Informed by the experience of 15 years successfully preparing students, we coach the applicant in creating a unique and original portfolio. 

  • Our program is highly personalized. Classes, Studio Hours, and Virtual Coaching are key components.
  • Each school has its own requirements, so a list of target schools is necessary.
  • When selecting schools, consider your financial situation. All college websites include a Financial Calculator that will allow you to estimate the cost of attending each school. 
  • Portfolio Prep Students applying to top art colleges will need to develop a comprehensive body of work comprised of at least 20 pieces of artwork in varied media, using concept and symbolism.

What we offer...

 • Are you thinking of pursuing an art related career? • HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT ART COLLEGES? •

If your son or daughter is considering a visual arts-related career such as Architecture, Animation, Industrial Design, Fashion Design, Vidoe-Game Design, Graphic Design, Cinematography or any other, they will need to put together a portfolio of work to apply. 

This detailed discussion of unique art/design application requirements will help demystify the application portfolio.  
• Participants will understand how to prepare a strong body of artwork. 
• They will also understand the balance of importance between 1) grades, curriculum rigor & test scores, and 2) indicators of artistic drive, voice, and passion demonstrated in the portfolio, sketchbooks, and in-person portfolio reviews.

A Q&A will follow the presentation. Send your questions in advance to Hans@InternationalCollegeCounselors.com
