Documenting Student Work

This week, seniors took lesson from Ananda on ways in which to document and photograph their artwork (large scale works and sketchbook works) for their portfolios
Coordinators and Mentors assisted scholars in taking superb photographs using tripods, hot lights and digital SLR cameras. Scholars learned to shoot their own work accounting for lighting, zoom, focus and composition.

After the photographs were taken, Mentors assisted scholars noticing whether the photos were in focus or not, making proper re-shoots if not. The photos were uploaded on a portable drive, on its way to being photoshopped for next weeks workshop.

National Portfolio Day

Scholars headed up to Lehman College in the Bronx for National Portfolio Day on Saturday November 20, spending the day visiting representatives from the colleges they're interested in.

The seniors received great feedback from Admissions reps, allowing them to improve their portfolios before submitting officially over the next few months.

Luis and Yelaine freezing in the name of our scholars!
