Virtual Classroom Portfolio Development Art Courses and Camps

If you or your teen loves art and animation or architecture and interior design then you'll love our selection of weekly courses and intensive summer camps! All our programs are offered online using virtual class rooms and tutorial videos. 

PortPrep Students Get Accepted to Top Ranked Art Schools in North America

Our focus is on teaching the skills needed to make art portfolios for application to art and design colleges and universities. PortPrep students get accepted into the top ranked animation schools like Sheridan , CalArts , Ringling or Seneca . And our students interested in illustration and art have been accepted to these fantastic schools: Sheridan Illustration, OCADU Illustration, or Emily Carr BFA Illustration,  Pratt, Parsons, RISD, or SVA. We are also specialists in architecture and interior design portfolios for schools like Ryerson, Waterloo, Carleton, RISD, Humber, OCADU, Dalhousie, and Laurentian. 

Camps and Classes for Youth, Teens and Young Adults

While most of our students are teens and young adults, we know the love of art, animation and design starts young! So this year we've added Drawing Fundamentals for Youth and Youth Animation Camp for 10 to 14 year olds. 

Creativity, Confidence, and Skill Development

All of our courses balance fun and creativity with focused instruction on sound foundational skills in drawing and design.

Our series of courses give plenty of one on one instruction and group interaction with opportunities to develop individual styles while collaborating with others to dream up truly inspiring art works and imaginative stories and designs. Our virtual classrooms are designed to replicate as close as possible the in person camp experience, complete with opportunities to build lasting friendships. 

Students enjoy learning how to develop their ideas for characters, stories, settings and even buildings both on their own, with study buddies and within teams. There's as much fun and laughter as there is serious focused attention on achieving excellent results and building confidence and motivation.

The goal of our courses and camps is to give students a taste of what is required from them to make their portfolios, and to teach them how to think like an artist that is capable of being in a competitive art field with the confidence and commitment to bring their creative dreams into reality. 

To reassure you that you or your teen will be in good hands, we have gathered a variety of  skilled professional artists that are professors and graduates of Sheridan, Seneca,  Humber Colleges and the University of Guelph.

Weekly Courses in June and July

In all the the courses the students use tutorial videos and meet with the instructor once per week for 1 to 3 hours. All courses require that the students prepare drawings, designs or paintings in between each session.

Below is a list of all the 8 week courses we offer on line:

  • Digital Painting
  • Animation Fundamentals I
  • Animation Fundamentals II
  • World Building I: Character Design
  • World Building II: Environment Design
  • Drawing Fundamentals for Animation
  • Drawing Fundamentals for Youth
  • Drawing Fundamentals for Designers
  • Architecture & Design Portfolio Fundamentals

Intensive Summer Camps in August

In all the the camps the students meet in groups via a virtual classroom daily for three classes each of 2 to 3 hours for an intensive bootcamp experience of 1 to 2 weeks. Time is given to work on their drawings during class and after class. Tutorial videos are also used but the focus is on group, team, and pair interaction and following along with the instructors' demonstrations. The camps are interactive, playful and engaging. In the camps the students collaborate on an overall group project which leads to lots of laughter and creative fun but with plenty of individual creative expression and skill development. These camps are designed for students who are serious about art, design and animation and are looking for guidance on making their art portfolios for application to college. Students will come out with significant improvements to their drawings and creations.

Note: These camps are normally run as in person day camps and are offered as residential camps but due to the Covid-19 outbreak all of our summer camps will be offered via virtual classrooms from the safety of your own home. Ensuring that the student is close to the modem will ensure a better experience. We record the sessions for the students in case of poor internet conductivity. 

Below is the list of Virtual Camps we run:

We use a combination of tutorial videos, virtual classroom group live streaming web conferencing, recordings, demonstrations, constructive input from instructors, creativity challenges, group, pair and individual activities. All the information needed will be sent to the students via email and shared documents giving detailed instructions. Material are straight forward, mostly just pencils and paper.
