Portfolio Preparation Bootcamp

The Artzone Portfolio Preparation Programme is for students applying for a place in third level art college for which a portfolio is mandatory.  This bootcamp is an intensive two-week (10-day) course, with highly qualified and motivated Art Teachers designed to kick-start portfolio preparations, develop mind maps, plan your portfolio and take part in a range of art projects critical to building a portfolio suitable for submission to Art College.

      Hi Edel, There are places at the moment, but we will be strictly limiting numbers as we want to ensure a good result for all from the week. The tutors are highly qualified and experienced, but young and energetic at the same time. They will also get time with Gillian our Art Director who has 20+ years experience getting students into Art College. regards, Paul
