Portfolio preparation:

The Canadian Contemporary School of Art offers high performance coaching for candidates seeking academic achievement in the Art and Design industry.

These classes are designed to teach students the value of being a visual communicator through creating new pieces for their portfolio while developing interview skills that will guarantee admission to your program of choice.

By meeting the requirements outlined a contract which outlines the responsibilities of the student, teacher, parent and school, we guarantee you will be successful in you application or you will receive a full refund.*

A complimentary assessment is required before enrolment with the Instructor in which students will bring current portfolios to show the Instructor for review.  

It is highly recommended students review the requirements of the school they are applying to for their portfolio assessment so that CCSA can best help to complete those requirements.

The Material List is not included in the final price, the student must bring their own. The price of materials depends on their quality, quantity, and student’s preferred medium. Budget about $150 to $300 for materials for making your portfolio.

Plan for at least 6 months – 1 year of preparation prior to applying to your school of choice to give you enough time to prepare a strong collection of work.
