Still on summer vacation? Make it productive & portfolio ready!
Los Angeles Art League has a specialized department in its school run by the school’s very own teachers designed to ensure that art school applicants will know the basics of art ingrained as part of their portfolio and create a portfolio that they can carry on with them to art universities and well into their career. Most art colleges require a portfolio consisting of anywhere from 15–20 examples of your best and most recent work reflecting mastery of technique and creative ideas with various mediums with additional academic transcripts. With the highly competitive admissions pool, the application process for students is a stressful period- the tuition fee being its own obstacle.
The teachers of Los Angeles Art League envisioned a school that would foster the growth of the upcoming young artists and nurture their growth from assembling a portfolio to ensuring artists find their niche as working professionals. Thus, the school created this specialized camp to guarantee the students receive their ticket as art college undergrads. The teachers create a package that is unique to each student. Upon enrollment in the camp, the students will receive a consultation from our very own teachers who will help design a mood board with color themes, fabric, illustrations, and symbols that would represent the student’s concentration. Extending beyond a basic consultation, that of Los Angeles Art League delves into the vision of the students as artists. With the wellbeing of the student in mind, it is no surprise that the Los Angeles Art League teachers even work to ensure that scholarship is met for the student. The school even incorporated supplementary academics as part of the curricula to make sure its students will focus on portfolio assemblage. With the students’ needs in mind, Director will recommend classes in which the students can develop their appropriate skillset for their portfolio.
Also, Los Angeles Art League is an art school that offers an array of art classes to each of its students. This year the school created an art camp with a 10 day package where students in their teens can learn photography, ceramics, digital arts, painting, fashion, and jewelry making. The students will learn the different settings of photography and utilize digital camera to learn about lighting and shutter speed. In ceramics class, the students will learn how to throw clay, use pinching and folding techniques to make vessels, learn how to sew and embroider, learn how to do figure drawings, and also jewelry making. The two week middle school art camp is perfect for students who want to learn about the various classes offered in art.
