Want tips on how to build your portfolio for admissions to art and design college?

Join the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Saturday, March 13, 1-2:00pm via Zoom for a virtual portfolio workshop! Stay after the event to have your portfolio reviewed by an admissions counselor from 2:00-3:00pm.

In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to understand how to assemble their BEST portfolio. These skills will help students as they prepare their applications for college and beyond.

In addition, students will get a chance to hear from Art Academy professor, Emily Hanako Momohara. Head of the photography department, Momohara has exhibited internationally, most notably at the Japanese American National Museum in a two-person show titled Sugar|Islands.

In this presentation, we will examine the following three components that should be thought of when assembling a portfolio:

1) Formal and Technical Skills

We’ll look at the tools that you use to make the work that you make: be it paint, clay, pencils, digital tools, written language, etc. We will discuss ways that you can always improve the elements and principles that go into creating art.

2) The Artistic Process

We’ll discuss how you record your ideas: be it in a sketchbook, in a blog, on social media, etc. An examination of the artistic process is always a helpful factor to consider when assembling a portfolio.

3) Content Development

What’s the concept? Developing new work can seem daunting, but we’ll discuss best practices that will help you learn how to invest into your richest ideas. We’ll discuss how you can insist on letting your concepts be at the forefront of your future, but also in perfect harmony with both your skills and processes.

After this workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to schedule virtual portfolio reviews with members of AAC’s Admissions team.
