The Portfolio Class, Part 2
June – February
Begins in early June and continues through late January or early February. The Portfolio Class, Part 2 offers a completely unique opportunity to young artists who wish to audition for admission to Booker T. Over the past 30 years, we have coached more than 500 students who landed one of the few coveted spots in the visual arts conservatory at the prestigious Dallas Arts Magnet. If a student does well at Booker T., they will find many opportunities for scholarship to the great art colleges and universities in this country and abroad.
We have come to understand The Portfolio Class as one of the most important offerings in our teaching practice. This class provides a private tutorial experience in a classroom setting. Please understand that this class is only for the art student who is serious about building an audition-ready portfolio. Our student placement success rate is fantastic, and for these 30 years we are the only prep class recommended by most of the art teachers at Booker T.
The numbers: At Booker – 1/4 to 1/2 half the freshman class spaces are filled each year with Studio Arts Portfolio Class graduates. Close to 100% of in-district freshmen that complete our coursework/homework have portfolios polished enough to enter their freshman class. It isn’t easy to become one of the sixty or so visual arts conservatory freshmen accepted.
We prepare students on many levels. We teach them to draw correctly from life. We get them ready for the rigorous audition. Our students develop confidence in their own visual language which allows them to excel as artists as they mature.

If you are not able to attend Portfolio Class Part 1, please set up an interview with us to join Portfolio Class Part 2.
Please note: If you miss a good part of the Summer during The Portfolio Class or join us late, expect to make up this missed time with private lessons.
We currently offer a Zoom version of the exact same Portfolio 2 course. You can join this class at any point in time.
