DRAWING PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENT

LCAD’s Drawing Portfolio Development is appropriate for developing Fine Arts, Illustration, Game Art and Animation portfolios.

  • Saturdays
  • 9 a.m. to noon
  • 10-week sessions
  • Cost: $300
  • Ages: 15 and up, all levels*

 

LCAD’s Portfolio Development Program focuses on creating artwork that would be acceptable for admission to a college or university. Our Saturday program presents an opportunity for you to perfect your observational drawing skills.

Using objects from real life, the emphasis is on creating a convincing representation of form and space that is defined by line, value, texture, and proportion. This includes figure drawing, working from both the draped and undraped model.

*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.
