Develop your portfolio for placement in specialized visual arts high schools including LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra and High School of Art & Design.
This intensive class will focus on developing observational and design skills in a variety of media in order to produce a varied portfolio that demonstrates technical skill as well as creativity and conceptual skills. We will address NYC Blueprint for the Arts Benchmarks to ensure students are prepared for specialized high school admissions. Class is geared toward specific portfolio requirements and includes extensive one-on-one instruction, sketchbook development exercises, short writing exercises about the art making process which will prepare students for the writing component of the application, and interview prep skills for the visual arts high school audition. All supplies will be provided and at the end of the course, students will each have a complete portfolio with mounted works for their audition.
Early drop-off/late pick up is available for all sessions of summer art intensives, where we provide your child with guided and independent art-making activities, games and more. Call 212-415-5562 to register.

Victoria Febrer is a fine artist based in New York City. Her artwork has been exhibited in the United States, Spain, Belgium, Ireland and Japan, with solo exhibitions in New York, Valencia and Madrid. Her interest in visual images centers around the relationship of the universal and the personal, and the way that repeated images and icons have influenced our understandings of our place in the world.

She has more than 10 years of experience helping students prepare portfolios for admission to competitive art & architecture programs.
