Portfolio Preparation Course Info Days

Information day for Portfolio Preparation Course launch for 2024

Sat 16 December, 2023 All day

Sat 16 December | Quay Arts, Seminar Room | 10am -12 noon 

Portfolio Preparation Course Information Days

Join artist / lead tutor Nick Martin, and Quay Arts Visual Arts and Education manager Ian Whitmore, for an informal information session to find out more about QA flagship Portfolio Preparation art course; launching in 2024.

This three-term course gives participants an opportunity to explore new avenues in art. Students have the chance to cover and develop core skills in a variety of mediums in workshops including drawing, painting, printing, traditional crafts, textiles, and sculpture.

The aim of the course is to prepare a portfolio of art and hone presentation skills to further your art practice. It is a non-accredited course, aimed at people who would like the ‘foundation course’ experience. This course will give you everything you need to create an exciting and impressive portfolio.

When it comes to our tutors, both artists from the island and guests from the mainland will hold a range of classes which will take place every Tuesday at Quay Arts and Jubilee Stores (our artist studio and workshop building, which is located close by down the river).

This information day is a great opportunity to talk about your creative experiences and aspirations, share examples of your work, ask questions and, if it’s a good fit for you, to sign up. This will be Quay Arts 5th year of running the Portfolio Preparation Course which has a maximum of 10 students, suitable for 18+.

For more details about applying, please contact artsteam@quayarts.org and a member of the Arts Team will get back to you!

Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
