College-bound? Whether you are applying to art school or a liberal arts college, this course is for you.  In these five sessions, we will work toward completing materials for your portfolio submission. We’ll discuss how to pull your image portfolio together; image selection, sequencing, and formatting. We will work with the essay questions for the Common App to help you hone your essay and image submission with peer review and individual instructor feedback.

Students will need a solid internet connection to attend class through Zoom with video and audio capacity, as well as basic computer skills, access to software to process their images, and the ability to upload them to a designated space for the instructor to share within the classroom.

It is recommended that you students have completed a photography course at MMW prior to this course, or are concurrently enrolled in “Developing Your Vision for Young Artists”.
