PORTFOLIO PREPARATION is a one day workshop designed for 15-18 year old students wishing to gain entry into either VCASS or a tertiary art institution.

With experienced knowledge of portfolio presentation requirements, Hannah Bertram will share the essential components necessary to develop your portfolio and feel confident going into the interview.  Hannah has sat on a number of selection panels for tertiary institutions and will prepare you for what will be needed in your portfolio and interviews.  You will learn strategies and develop your visual diary to help you in finding your voice, a strength required when discussing your work in an interview plus it deepens your engagement to art in general.

Topics we’ll cover:
– Expectations of VCASS/BFA and how they differ from high school
How to write an exceptional exhibition review
– Photographing and selecting images for folio
– What you may be asked in your interview and why
– Managing nerves, ways to talk about yourself and your work, and mock interviews
– What to ask and look for on Open days
– Idea generation, curiosity and experimentation
– Expressing your unique perspective
– Exhibitions, artists and artworks – where to go, what to look at, how to record it
– How to show that you have undertaken independent work outside of school
