ART 200 Portfolio Preparation

Credits: (1)
Today’s art world demands a digital presence and an ability to communicate the visual arts electronically. This course will help students learn how to professionally photograph, scan and digitize their visual work. Students will work one-to-one with faculty to develop individually focused and discipline-specific portfolios. It will also model the type of communication that often takes place between artists, galleries, professors, community members and curators. It is recommended that students begin the course with a substantial body of work from a variety of artistic disciplines. This course will focus on sequencing and editing images for inclusion in a final portfolio, portfolio presentation models, and writing artist statements. Students will work to develop a comprehensive visual arts portfolio for submission for transfer applications. By the end of the course, students will have a digital representation of their portfolio to share and build upon in the future. The course is comprised of portfolio editing, written assignments, research, and project development. Prerequisite(s): ART/PHO majors or permission of instructor.
