Portfolio Development I is meant for the student preparing the early stages of their portfolio. In this course, accomplished artist Stephanie Folk will work with students to assign projects perfect for the fundamental cornerstone pieces every portfolio needs. Subjects will include portraiture, basic anatomy, still life, complex compositional arrangement, hyperrealism and range in mediums such as ink, colored pencil, acrylic paint, watercolor, pastel and graphite. This course will provide plenty of constructive critique, advice on college applications, expectations of portfolio submissions and more. This course will also focus on developing techniques in portfolio essentials, such as conceptual creations, mood, lighting, art history and more. Throughout the course each student will gain the confidence in their personal mark-making and push the boundaries of their creativity to develop an individualized and dynamic portfolio.
Students who have completed enough projects in this class may graduate into the Portfolio Development II class where more advanced and individualized projects will be completed.
