Within our educational counseling services we have specialized portfolio building programs to enhance and offer a competitive advantage to be admitted to your dream school. A portfolio is not a supplementary piece of information but instead a CRITICAL part of your application that demonstrates why you should be admitted into your school program of choice. A portfolio showcases more than academic grades – it displays the student’s passion! Foundation Global Education’s Arts & Design Portfolio Program is highly recommended for students who are thinking of pursuing a carer in the field of arts and design.
Foundation offers the only one-of-its-kind: a dual service of Arts Counseling and Visual Arts & Design Portfolio Program. To be accepted to the best arts and design programs require more than just good grades; students must now also demonstrate artistic talent beyond academics to prove their ability to thrive in the competitive field. Arts and Design Schools, Boarding Schools, Universities, and Colleges require a practical visual arts portfolio as part of the manditory application process. Foundation’s expert counselors and art professionals work as a team to provide the best vision for your child. We mentor and teach students the skills and techniques to create visual content for their portfolio in order to show they are capable of expressing their own personal artistic flair.
Below are some common careers associated with visual arts and design:
The Visual Arts & Design Portfolio Program is taught by experienced professionals who have extensive experience working in the industry of arts and design. We are familiar with the entry requirements of major art and design universities and have been helping students unravel the specific design language, criteria and expectations of this challenging and competitive area of study.
Foundation Academy’s art experts will conduct an in-depth constructive critique of the student’s portfolio to identify gaps, and areas to be improved in each individual artwork collection. We provide professional mentorship and focused attention to students by helping them develop specific art pieces that demonstrate diversity and understanding of various media, thereby creating a well-rounded art portfolio for academic submission with personal artistic expression.
Many schools in Hong Kong do not provide sufficient student attention or tailored guidance on an individual basis due to large classes at school, thereby hampering the ability of young creative minds to flourish optimally. Foundation’s Visual Arts & Design Portfolio Program is conducted in personalized sessions on a one-on-one basis. Your child will always get individual attention and a creative outlet to ask questions while learning the tools needed to build their admissions portfolio.
Students will learn portfolio-building tools and techniques to create, organize, design and enhance their artwork for web portfolio and physical portfolio submissions. At Foundation Global Education, we want to help students showcase their passion, their talent, and their determination to stand out from the applicant pool.
Competitive art and design programs require an artist statement as part of the mandatory application process. Art experts and English teachers at Foundation Global Education advise and coach students on writing the perfect personal artist statement using the correct design language to express their passion and enhance their distinctive personality!
