What is an art portfolio course?
This is a portfolio preparation and general art course for students who wish to gain entry to a third level Art College in Ireland, the UK or abroad. The emphasis will be placed on the preparation of a balanced portfolio as well as developing skills in the art, craft and design areas.
The portfolio, showing the students individual sense of design and pattern, can use a wide variety of the modules covered on the course as well as the students own interpretation of colour and design.
