Art Portfolio Development

Portfolio Development supports aspiring artists through the application process for an art or design undergraduate college. Students interested in applying for art and design undergraduate studies have work ready to submit, but need support choosing and photographing work suitable for a digital portfolio. These courses also help students to draft a letter of intent and statement of purpose, as well as participate in mock interviews.  Portfolio Development for Art and Design will be offered in fall 2023, winter and summer 2024.

Serious high-school students with existing video files interested in majoring in film will have the opportunity to receive feedback and guidance from experienced mentors and Cornish admissions staff to create a digital portfolio suitable for college submissions.
