This intensive workshop focuses on the production of digital and physical portfolios, from creation to documentation. This workshop is aligned with the new ECU Admissions Guidelines and will help students through a holistic engagement with the application process, as well through peer and instructor review. Issues surrounding selection of work, photo documentation and practical approaches to building a strong portfolio will be discussed.

Due to the online nature of the programs this year, students participating in the Portfolio Workshop for Teens will need to have their own access to the hardware and materials required for the course. For the workshop, students will need to have at hand all work they are considering for their portfolio, a notebook and pen. Students will need access to a computer with a webcam, a headphone and microphone set, and a camera, smartphone or tablet to document their work.
