Intermediate Portfolio Development, Poughkeepsie


This course is modeled after a college level foundation course in drawing & painting. It will introduce students to perspective, color, shape, line, form, and classical art techniques while helping them to master those same skills. Beginning level portfolio pieces in charcoal, acrylics, and other media will be developed. Through the concepts and skills developed in the course, students are prepared to take our pre-college Advanced Portfolio Development course.
