Build Your Portfolio (Free)

Arts University Plymouth’s 3-day Build Your Portfolio Course is aimed at 15-18 year olds and is designed to help you create a diverse range of work and build the skills you need to present a strong creative portfolio to the universities of your choice.

Join us from Monday 3 April to Wednesday 5 April 2023 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 portfolio submissions, this FREE 3 day course will guide you through a range of subjects and small projects that will help you create work you can be proud to show your prospective university. On top of this, you will have the opportunity to photograph your 3D work professionally, and you will also learn how to present your work within the portfolio confidently.
