Portfolio Preparation Courses

Why should you choose Cre8sArt School?

  • Cre8sArt School gives the students a chance to express themselves; it gives them a voice.

  • Art is essential for any human being as it provides them an outlet where they can express who they are, and who they want to be.

  • Creative and artistic thinking allows the students to take control of something. At this age teenagers are still told what to do and how to do it, both at home and school. They crave the chance to have some freedom of expression and make some decisions on their own. 

  • Our classes are designed to help in developing important artistic skills in drawing, painting and observing.

  • Students will explore their own creativity and their own style.

  • Through class work and group discussions, students will develop new analytical vocabulary, conceptual thinking, and will learn to discuss their artwork.

Portfolio Preparation


  • Our team will help the students to prepare their art portfolios for high school and college admissions. 

  • We will assist with selecting their best works and professionally photographing them.
