Objective:
Students interested in the fine arts and applying to high school or middle school will produce original work to develop an art portfolio. Artwork will be created in a variety of styles and techniques, utilizing traditional and contemporary methods with an imaginative and creative approach.

A final evaluation and selection of 15 to 20 pieces will constitute the portfolio. All selected pieces will be mounted and properly labeled before auditions/interviews.
90% of our students are accepted into LaGuardia High School.
