A Note From The Teachers
We started the Online Studio Arts website to assist the many art students that do not have access to the level of art education required to create and develop a high-quality art portfolio. It is a superior and diverse body of work in the student portfolio that can make all the difference in gaining acceptance and obtaining scholarships to the nation’s top art colleges.
In recent years, we have seen art programs in public schools disintegrate. Students have been denied access to courses as well as supplies due to lack of funding. Courses get cancelled, art departments shrink, and art students are left without the necessary materials, instruction, and attention needed at a critical time in their artistic development.
We have also seen students in a complete panic during their senior year when they realize that they need to improve their portfolio contents and do so in a hurry. Maybe they just decided to seriously consider having a career in the arts, or maybe they didn’t have room in their school schedules to take art classes. Whatever the reason is, we are here to help.
This is why we are providing this service to our online students. We will work directly with you to see where you stand in your portfolio development. We will provide you with feedback and support regarding your artwork along with art assignments, projects and sketchbook challenges designed to increase your ability to think creatively and create artwork that is a unique representation of who you are as an artist. We will guide you, step by step, through the process of producing a high quality competitive art portfolio.
We look forward to working together with you on this exciting artistic journey!
