ADVANCED TEENS / PORTFOLIO PREP
Online (PST), in Mountain View, San Jose, and San Francisco
2 hours weekly, online: $170 monthly in-studio: $200 monthly
High-quality art materials are included into the in-studio price. No registration fee.
This course meets high standards of artistic education. It offers a college-level challenge, and it helps develop a corresponding quality of art works. Students of this course know the basics of drawing and painting*, and are now looking for perfection of their skills, or for a unique artistic voice, and for that final touch that makes good artworks great.
Upon request, we help students with high school or college art portfolio preparation.

*All programs that cover beginner teen drawing and painting are offered as online All About Drawing / All About Painting courses, or in person at Beginner Teens in-studio classes.
We respect each creative individuality and allow students to work on projects of their personal interest at a comfortable pace. However, we often have a general theme of a class like cast drawing, live model painting, figure drawing, character & location design, digital painting, sculpting, fan art, creative composition. It's up to a student if he/she wants to join the group or work on a personal project.
