Katherine Ross - Art Classes/Portfolio Development
Katherine conducts classes for ALL AGES. Instruction is available in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media and plein aire. The emphasis of her classes is to learn the tools and skills necessary for individual visual expression. Through exploration of medium and artistic projects, Katherine helps students find their voice.
For the creative college-bound student, portfolio submissions can be overwhelming. Since 2004, Katherine has helped her students reach their goals and acceptance into such schools as:
Katherine's classes are custom designed for each of her students.
Creative assignments are developed and completed in the studio to meet requirements of each college and institution of interest.
In addition to the studio time, Katherine offers services in college counseling for the creative student. This includes meetings to discuss college choices, the creation of a timetable of requirements and deadlines, and assistance with questions and application issues that may arise pertaining to the student's portfolio.
Katherine also assists in the creation of the portfolio. She photographs and scans the student's artwork, and works individually with each student in choosing and arranging the artwork for the portfolio, creating a typed inventory, and then burning CD's and/or uploading the final portfolio to colleges' websites.
