It doesn't really matter about your style or preferred art form, it's all art and that's what I loved!' – Portfolio Workshop participant, January ’18. We want to do our best to support these young artists and know how daunting college/university applications can be (we have all been there!) so please let us help you learn the ins and outs of creative arts applications.
