Many parents tell us that Studio Arts is their teen’s home away from home. Our greatest achievements at Studio Arts lie in supporting teens meet lofty art goals through serious study. For 25 years our studio has supported teens as they create individualized portfolios to successfully gain admission to Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, other local high schools and first-choice colleges and art schools. Our College Portfolio class continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In February, we offer Post-Portfolio class for those students who want to continue on with their Portfolio tribe. Pre-Portfolio is the class for seventh through ninth graders interested in pursuing Portfolio class in June for Booker T. hopefuls. Barley Vogel, Studio Arts director, has created a safe space that allows art students to gather as they build relationships and continue their transformation into creative, successful, young-adult working artists.
