One might think that building a portfolio is as simple as putting together a few doodles and artworks your kids have done over the years and submitting them to the schools of your choice. However, taking into consideration of the increasing standard of each art school and your child’s choice of specialisation, a simple collation of your art works simply will not suffice!

Preparing a portfolio for the school of your choice has a standardised set of requirements to be met. Not only that, it is the only platform and chance you get to impress the admission officers with your own sense of style, good art foundational skills as well as your own set of talents!

Visual Arts Centre’s Approach to Art Portfolio Preparation Course

Every young artist has their own interests. With that into consideration, our professionally trained instructors will train your kid from the utmost basics of drawing and sketching to producing their own unique style of artworks over a period of time. Our goal is to help your kid build a good foundation and slowly – as time goes by, help them find their niche and cultivate their creativity.

We broke down 3 key criteria we have collated from some of the top local and global art schools: 

  1. Good Foundational Art Skills in Different Mediums
  2. A Diverse Range of Skills That Showcases Your Unique Style and Capabilities
  3. Clear Display of Logical Thinking and Development of Artwork


We’ve broken the painstaking journey of building a portfolio into two different parts: 

Part 1: Foundational Art Techniques and 2D Works

Part 2: Development of Artworks

Part 1: Foundational Art Techniques and 2D Works

In part 1, we would place more focus on developing your kid’s foundational skills. These foundational skills are the key ingredient to making a great portfolio as it it the base of each and every artist’s journey in the professional world. Over the course of 24 Sessions, we would place emphasis on honing these techniques and conduct an assessment after every technique has been taught. This enables us to track our student’s progress and ensure that we are able to identify their weaker points and spend more time on those areas.

Most artists are usually skilled with more than one art medium. At Visual Art Centre, we hope to train our students to be well-rounded. This would enable them to be more versatile and to be able to meet the needs of their clients in the future or even for them to achieve the most out of their creativity in their own artworks.

How Does It Work?

Each student would be given a folder with guides, reference materials, feedback and rubrics made in reference from the criteria of the top schools as well as our our instructor’s professional feedback. On top of that we would conduct an assessment after each learning stage. This folder will be a good addition to the preparation to allow our student to track their progress and know where they are at during the preparation process.

Visual Arts Centre is motivated with the mission to get your child into their preferred art school. Over here, we adopt a unique and systematic approach that allows you to train your foundational art skills and develop your own sense of creativity. From foundational skills to how to ace those interviews, Visual Arts Centre has it all covered.

This course is available for registration for the full 48 Sessions, that focuses on both Part (1) and Part (2). Click here to find out more!
