Pre-College Art Portfolio Development Summer Intensive

Weekly July 4th - August 25th

Elevate Your Art Portfolio and Get Accepted to the Art Program of Your Dreams with Mckenzie College’s PreCollege Art Portfolio Development Summer Intensive

McKenzie College is thrilled to offer a series of art portfolio development intensive workshops this summer. These workshops are designed to help students who are preparing creative design art portfolios for university and college applications.

The PreCollege Art Portfolio Development Summer Intensive is a hands-on program that provides students with an opportunity to work with experienced instructors to build a robust portfolio that showcases their skills and creativity. Designed for individuals between the ages of 15+, participants will work on a variety of  projects including drawing, painting and more. In addition to honing their skills, students will learn how to take photos of their work and create digital portfolios that are sure to help them gain access into the post-secondary art program of their dreams. Individuals  will also receive valuable feedback from their instructors and participate in peer critiques, helping them to refine their portfolios and develop a critical eye for their work.

If you have children under the age of 15 that are interested in studying art this summer, please check out our Summer Art Camps for ages 8-14.


The portfolio-building workshop is a great networking opportunity, as students will have the chance to work alongside like-minded individuals and build friendships that could last a lifetime. The workshops will run weekly throughout July and August of 2024, providing students with a full week to develop their portfolios and gain new skills.

The workshops will take place on the McKenzie College campus, located at 100 Cameron Street in Moncton, New Brunswick. The cost of each week-long workshop is $250 and that amount will be applied towards your tuition for your September start date should you decide to study at McKenzie College (up to a maximum of $250 per student)!  We recommend students bring their own art supplies, but they will also have access to a variety of materials and digital tools on campus.

McKenzie College is dedicated to providing high-quality education and training for students in the creative arts. The portfolio-building workshop is just one of many programs offered by the college that provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their future careers. By participating in this workshop, students will be well on their way to achieving their goals and realizing their creative potential.
