When asked what their favorite thing about the Portfolio Development Workshop was, students responded:
“This course was absolutely amazing, a breath of fresh air for an artist that's just beginning his journey!”
“I appreciate how supportive and honest all the staff and instructors are, they help us prepare [for art school] and encourage us to keep pushing forward.”
“The critiques from [John] Mahoney really gave me an unusual look at my artistic improvement and not only motivated me to keep working on my art but gave me a deeper view on what it means to be an artist and helped my improve my artistic process.”
“The opportunity to reflect where I am as an artist. The genuine personal critique gave me excitement and energy to draw even more!”
“I really respect and feel grateful for John Mahoney for his inspiring and encouraging critiques and advice. The assignments are well categorized, and it really did help guide me on how to proceed in creating portfolio/sketchbook. Thank you!”
