School of Art to launch Portfolio Plus program

The School of Art’s new “Portfolio Plus” program, which will run June 16-July 9 and is open to all St. Louis-area high-school students, will consist of morning sessions focusing on art fundamentals and afternoon sessions centered on one of seven studio disciplines.

The 9 a.m.-noon sessions will include a drawing class emphasizing observational drawing and the figure, as well as a class exploring both two-dimensional and three-dimensional design.

For the 1-4 p.m. sessions, students may choose from one of seven studio electives: ceramics, computer graphics, fashion design, watercolor painting, photography, printmaking or sculpture.

The morning and afternoon sessions are each worth two hours of college credit. In addition, students who successfully complete the program will receive letters of recommendation for college applications.

Studio sizes are limited, and the registration deadline is May 1. Cost is $900 plus a $150 materials fee, or $500 and a $75 materials fee for either the morning or afternoon sessions alone.

For more information or to register, call Cris Baldwin at 935-4701 or Belinda Lee at 935-8456.
