UNDERGRADUATE PORTFOLIO PREPARATION
NYART Undergraduate Portfolio Prep course is designed for freshman or transfer undergraduate applicants for college. In an undergraduate portfolio, it is very important to show how risk-taking and dedicated the applicant is to expressing the concepts, ideas and interest, as much as some technical skills.
Our professional instructors and admissions staff specialize in devising individual curricula for students based on their targeted major and schools, previous GPA, and background. NYART’s instructors work individually with each student to develop each project designed just for the student, so everyone gets different projects for their unique portfolio.
NYART’s Undergraduate Portfolio Prep course, if combined with Admission Management Program, includes all aspects of assistance in the entire art school admission process including consultations, essay writing, application submission, documentation of portfolio works and communication with colleges.
We offer long-term, as well as short-term classes to accommodate student needs.
