Calling All Art Students: Portfolio in a Pinch with a Pro.

For students looking to create a strong portfolio for either a college or academic program, Visual Arts Center is offering a 10-week session beginning January 9 to boost their portfolios. Each week students will create a work of art in a variety of media such as charcoal, pencil, watercolor, acrylics, and even sculpture. By the end of the semester students will have 7-10 pieces that they can use toward their portfolio, along with the knowledge of how to photograph and present their work in a cohesive way, All materials provided.

The class is taught by local artist, Andrea Gianchiglia.  Gianchiglia graduated from the Hartford Art School receiving a BFA in illustration with a minor in art history. Andrea works as a full time artist with private commissions and freelance illustration, as well as an art instructor at various art facilities throughout New Jersey. She is represented at Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery and has had both individual and group shows throughout New Jersey and the tri-state area. She has won several awards for her specialty, animal portraiture at various national juried shows and is a member of the Society of Animal Artists, the Pastel Society of America, the Salmagundi Club, and the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club.
