This intensive class is for serious young artists aiming to create competitive portfolios for art-school and college admissions and scholarships. Over the years our students have garnered many thousands of dollars in scholarships for the quality of their artwork.  Our students have gained admittance into top art programs such as Ringling College of Art & Design, RISD, Pratt, FIT, SVA, and Hartford Art School, as well as graduate level programs such as New York Academy of Art.  Students work one-on-one with the instructor, following a specific course of action designed to meet the student’s portfolio needs, skill level, and time constraints.

Teens interested in art as a hobby are also welcome!  We will help you take your work to the next level.

Digital Art on your iPad is also welcome in this class.  Please call or email us for more information.
