1. J started the University Art Portfolio course at CIEG at the beginning of Grade 10. Before starting the course, J had no previous education in arts or design. In order to develop a hobby outside the classroom and improve his artistic skill, J decided to give the painting a try.
Throughout the three-month intensive painting course (8 hours per week), J gradually developed his intense passion for painting and visual arts. He learned drawing basics, sketching, and color composition with different instructors from various backgrounds, during which one of the instructors noticed his talent in architectural design. His acute sense in 3-D object design is outstanding among the rest of the students.
2. S came to see us 5 days before the application date of Emily Carr and Pratt Institute. She did not know how to put them together to make it into a complete portfolio. CIEG guided her to rearrange all of her artworks, took refined photographs of her works, and edited all of her previous descriptions, with less than 5 days. S successfully submitted everything before the final deadline and received offers from both schools.
3. T suffered from slight depression and had no hope for his future in Grade 11. After consulting with us, we evaluated his comprehensive art skills and noticed his exceptional potential in the area of multimedia. After 4-month study in the program of University Art Portfolio Preparation – VIP Course, T gained the 3rd place in Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition. In December, T’s portfolio (30 artworks, including one animation clip) was highly praised by the admission officers from 5 top art colleges in the US.
T got offers from Art Center College of Design, California Institute of the Arts, and School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and received a total scholarship amount of over $50,000.Final Art Portfolio Packaging
