During the Spring of 2019, the Molloy College Art Department also offers three pre-college, Saturday portfolio development classes to mature, motivated, junior and senior high school students in:
- Introduction to Life Drawing
- Introduction to Digital Design
- Introduction to Sculpture and Ceramics
Each course runs for eight sessions on Saturdays and are offered every fall and spring semester. The courses are offered at our Rockville Centre campus. Course descriptions can be found below.
The tuition for each of these eight week courses of study is $150 (including all supplies and model fees).
A limited numbers of need-based scholarships are available. You would need to contact Leonard Antinori, the Art Department Chairperson, at 516 323-3185 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org for an interview and a personal portfolio review. His office is located in the Wilbur Arts Center Room 211.
Introduction to Life Drawing*
An eight week drawing course specifically designed for motivated high school students interested in developing a successful Fine Arts portfolio for college admissions requirements. The curriculum will encompass figure studies (clothed and nude models*) and self-portraiture introducing a variety of drawing techniques and media, within an Art Historical context. Students will be required to bring their stiff, large portfolio case since most of the supplies will be distributed in class and is included in the tuition. Homework will be assigned to promote maximum developmental improvement as well as additional portfolio pieces.
*Because of the use of a nude model after the first or second class, all students are required to have a signed permission slip from their parents/guardians. The permission slip will be given out in the first class.
