KCAD Continuing Studies presents: Portfolio Camp 2018 (Ages 16-18)

You may have thought about the future of your education, but what about the future of your
creativity? Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University’s (KCAD’s) Portfolio Camp
enables you to:
∙ Understand the basics of organizing and presenting your work
∙ Begin translating your art and/or design skills to KCAD’s creative community
∙ Explore the KCAD campus and its resources
∙ Emerge prepared for the application process

Over the course of two weeks, you’ll become completely immersed in an artistic exploration that
will change the way you think about your creative potential. You’ll experiment with still life, figure or
landscape drawing, design drawing, printmaking, and 3D printing, and create 2-4 finished portfolio
pieces. You’ll meet one-on-one with KCAD Admissions staff to review your current work and set
goals for your future. You’ll bond with your fellow aspiring creatives through group activities, and
connect with current KCAD undergraduate students, many of whom are Portfolio Camp alumni.
Portfolio Camp tuition ($1195) includes over 70 hours of studio time guided by KCAD faculty
and Continuing Studies instructors, 1-2 personalized portfolio review sessions, field trip admission
to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and two studio nights each week, including
a light dinner.

Students are responsible for bringing their own art supplies and for purchasing their own lunch daily, along with most dinners. They’re also highly encouraged to bring previously created works of art (or photos and documentation of such) to portfolio review sessions.

Housing, based on double occupancy, is available nearby for an additional $1195. Housing cost includes room, linens, transportation, supervision. Coin operated laundry facilities are available nearby.

As a college within Ferris State University, Kendall College of Art and Design prepares students for leadership in the visual arts, design, art history, and art education; provides innovative, collaborative education that fosters intellectual growth and individual creativity; and promotes the ethical and civic responsibilities of artists and designers, locally and globally. KCAD’s expert faculty and supportive atmosphere guide students to success in 17 specialized undergraduate programs.
