Portfolio Development Program | 2018-19
YOUR FUTURE BEGINS WITH YOUR PORTFOLIO
Laguna College of Art and Design’s (LCAD) Portfolio Development Programs were designed carefully by, and are taught by, professional artists and designers. All LCAD Portfolio Development Programs focus on building skills that lead to the creation of portfolio-ready bodies of work.
At the conclusion of each Portfolio Development Program, participating students assemble a portfolio of their best work for presentation to a college admissions committee.
All LCAD Portfolio Development Programs are suitable for all levels of high school and college students.
DRAWING PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENT
Working from both draped and undraped figure models, students draw from life. Instructors emphasize the creation of convincing representation of form and space that are defined by line, value, texture, and proportion.
- 18” x 24” Strathmore Series paper or equivalent weight drawing paper (bond)
- One of each graphite drawing pencils: H, HB, 2B, and 4B
- One of each vine charcoal sticks or pencils: soft, medium, and hard
- One Magic Rub and one kneaded eraser
- One X-ACTO knife
- Portable container to hold materials
Please note: Some of the class sessions include drawing from a nude model; therefore, applications from students under the age of 18 must include a signature from a parent or legal guardian.
This course is suitable for those who have little to no instruction in observational drawing. In order to meet LCAD Admissions’ portfolio standards, students should expect to complete additional work outside of this course. Please contact LCAD’s Admissions Office for more information.
