ART* E290 - Portfolio Preparation I (1 credit)

Previously AR 261

Prerequisite(s): Matriculation in one of the following programs: Fine Arts - Art, Graphic Design, Graphic Design (Multimedia Option), Graphic Design Certificate; permission of the art coordinator.
The advisor will work with students individually to create a portfolio for their specific needs. There is no set schedule for class meetings. Students may be required to work independently to create additional artwork or refine preexisting work to strengthen the quality of the portfolio. Students will learn how to select and arrange work in a neat and orderly manner and will be introduced to some of the technologies currently employed to reproduce artwork. Those planning to transfer to a four-year college should research the portfolio requirements for each institution. Students developing career portfolios may be required to purchase a professional portfolio case. All students will be required to photograph the work presented in their final portfolio and submit digital files of a professional quality at the end of the term. A set of these images will be reviewed by a panel of Art Department faculty and retained as a record of the student’s work. Course Outline: ART 290
