(just in time) Portfolio Review & Prep

Come to the Dojo to round out and refine your portfolio for submission to the Fine Arts Academy at McCallum or any other art program. The focus of our school is drawing and painting from direct observation and our intensive sessions will teach you technique and enable you to produce a number of drawings that will fulfill portfolio requirements. We are also offering private portfolio reviews in which one of our instructors will look at your body of work and provide feedback and editorial suggestions.

We are offering one session each Sunday in January.
