Develop a portfolio that will make you stand out

What will you do at Art Portfolio Camp?

Develop the type of work that helps you stand out as an applicant to admissions evaluators. Over this two-week studio intensive, you’ll develop 7–10 pieces that will impress the best art colleges. You will also visit college art programs and art museums in the Boston area.

Students will have access to personal individual studios for 8 hours of classes during the day and evening. Kipp Greene has 25 years of college portfolio experience, and his students regularly attend RISD, SAIC, Parsons, FIT, and other art schools.
