Arts University Plymouth’s 4-day Build Your Portfolio Course, for 15-18-year-olds, is designed to help you create a diverse range of work and build the skills you need to present a creative portfolio during college and university interviews.

Join us from Monday 24 to Thursday 27 October 2022, 10am - 4pm, and get stuck into a range of workshops, from life drawing to 3D sculpture.

If you need to build your creative portfolio in preparation for university interviews, this free course will guide you through a range of subjects and small projects to help you create work that you can be proud to show your prospective university or college. You will also have the opportunity to photograph your 3D work professionally.

From a range of creative disciplines, you'll enhance your portfolio as well as learn how to present and discuss your work. Upon completion, we will also guarantee you an interview on your course of interest if you apply to study at Arts University Plymouth.
