The Portfolio eCourse

I've launched my first eCourse, The Portfolio Course, and I'm excited to introduce you to it and it'll teach you 'Everything You Need To Know To Build A Great Portfolio For Application To University Or Employment'. 


This is the first course I have for sale. Each of my courses teach something different. It's a great site which is easy to use and easy for me to add new courses, so i'm hoping to add the Interior Architecture Basis course soon, and make this a learning hub for young designers and creative entrepreneurs. A lot of work has gone into this and I'm really excited to share this with you. The Portfolio Course is aimed at students and young designers, to assist them in the preparation of a portfolio for application to Art College, University, Internship or Employment. This is an online course, with a series of video lectures and downloads, meaning you can work at your own pace. I brings over 7 years of experience within higher education in the UK, Japan and India, and I have taught Portfolio Preparation workshops in schools and colleges internationally. 



The course is structured to assist students who are aware of their specialist area of study (Graphics, Interiors, Architecture, Fashion, etc) and gives advice on content, selection of work, presentation and submission (physical and/or digital) of the portfolio. Starting with the foundation skills such as drawing and sketchbook keeping, we move onto focussing on your subject area and contextualise your practice. If you are feeling the need to create additional work to build up your portfolio, there are a range of optional projects included in this course. These have been designed to encourage you to showcase your skills and creativity, as well as increase your awareness of both historical, cultural and contemporary art and design practices.

Upon completion of this online course, you will have a portfolio of work for application to Art College, University, Internship or Employment. There's lifetime access, you can study at your own pace and it's fun!!

I'll be adding more courses and workshops overtime to help you develop your skills and support your learning. In the meantime, feel free to join the facebook group, and let me know if you have any questions.
