Preparing a Portfolio

Portfolio Clinics

Your portfolio is a visual representation of who you are, and a collection of work that showcases your individual creative and technical experiences.

OCAD University has created a unique portfolio program with you in mind. Portfolio Clinics are designed for learners ages 15 and up interested in pursuing a creative pathway towards post-secondary education. We are excited to work alongside you in developing your studio art and design skills. This series of workshops encompasses all aspects of the art and design process; these may range from research and conception, to problem solving, to finalizing and sharing.

Taught by OCAD U faculty who are professionals in their field, you will come away with a better understanding of how studio-based research and creative process work can come together to support a strong portfolio piece. The various workshop offerings present an opportunity for you to explore different techniques, mediums and approaches to a studio practice applicable to any art and design program.
