*In the past 5 years, we have seen students are taking much longer to get ready and have a harder time with creativity. Some factors include a heavier load of homework from school and the prevalence of digital devices in our students' life, including social media and videogames.
Have you heard about Art Magnet Schools? These are middle and high public schools consistently ranked in the top 100 public schools in the country. They have high academic standards and outstanding Art Programs. Some of the schools where our students have been admitted:
The Portfolio Prep Program has 4 components
1. A weekly class, 2.5 hours long: where the student will be working to develop original ideas, do explorations and acquire new skills
2. Studio hours, 2.5 hours a week: where the student creates in the studio, and a teacher is available to answer technical questions.
3.Work at home: where the student will work on main projects, research, and sketchbook explorations and practices, as well as independent self-driven work.
4. Virtual Coaching or in-studio consultation: available by appointment, to clarify any issue that might come up when the student is working at home.
The Portfolio Prep Program is tailored to each individual applicant. The earlier the student starts, the higher are the chances of being accepted and the lower the anxiety level for your child. There is only one date to show what your student can do, the day of the audition.
Give your student the time they need to prepare for these very competitive and highly successful programs.
