CLAUDIA IS SOLD-OUT, BUT ZOEY STILL HAS A FEW SLOTS AVAILABLE!

 

REGISTRATION ENDS APRIL 30

Illustrator Day:

In lieu of in-person meetings we will be sponsoring Zoom portfolio critiques with Zoey and Claudia!

 

VIRTUAL CRITIQUES WILL BE SCHEDULED OVER THE FIRST WEEKEND OF MAY

 

If you have sign up for a portfolio critique, you will be scheduled for a one-on-one Zoom meeting with your faculty member. Before that meeting, you will be asked to submit portfolio images via a shared drive such as Dropbox. Once that is done, faculty will consider the images and then discuss during the one-on-one. All times will be for roughly 10 minutes.
