ART YARD Portfolio Fall 2020
Registration Form


ART YARD Portfolio students work with Director Meridith McNeal, Managing Director Dennis Buonagura and a rotating roster of ART YARD teaching artists and college professors to develop strong personal portfolios. During the classes, participants create artwork in a variety of materials for inclusion in their portfolios, and engage in discussions and critiques which help them to develop vocabulary and confidence to discuss their ideas and artwork. Each week, students are given homework which helps them to deepen the skills learned in class while working on self-guided artwork required for portfolios. Student work is reviewed by instructors, staff and peers with the aim to present the strongest portfolio. Fall 2020 sessions (12 week course) will be held virtually on Zoom. Class sizes are limited.

ART YARD Portfolio Fall 2020 will be held on Zoom - Tuesdays from 4 - 6pm

September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 13, 20, 27,
November 3, 10, 17, 24, Dec 1

Participating artists to are expected to be on time, make themselves visible during instruction & critique but not during art making, actively participate in breakout group discussions and critique, bring completed homework to each session and email photographs of their work to Meridith after class.

We will email the required materials list by September 1st.
