A full portfolio prepared by my student for an animation program at one of Ontario’s leading Colleges this year. The student got accepted and is already working full force through her first semester.
Here are some of the works included:
“The first drawing is a hooved, horned, and muscled life-like representation of a bull.
The last is just a few lines, though definitely a bull.
That’s the Apple way.”
Here’s an interesting bit from Pacific Standard Magazine article on the benefits of Art Education published on October 17, 2014.
“Disputing the “gloomy myths around the value of an arts degree,” the report finds overall job satisfaction for people who have graduated with an arts degree over the past five years is quite high, at 75 percent. That figure is down only slightly from that of older graduates, 82 percent of whom say they are satisfied with their current job.
The report tracked 17,000 alumni who completed an undergraduate or graduate degree in the arts up to five years before being surveyed, along with 88,000 who earned degrees before that time. By far the biggest group of recent graduates—32 percent—earned a degree in fine and studio arts, including photography. Another 15 percent earned a degree in design, with nine percent earning theater and music degrees.”

Great news, one of my portfolio preparation students wins a $3000 scholarship by entering an oil pastel still life created at the Hermitage Art Studio. Congratulations Polina!
“Helen’s art classes have benefited me tremendously. I have been attending them for three years and she has pushed me to be the best that I could be. I’ve achieved artwork that I did not think was capable of creating.
With the knowledge I obtained from Helena’s visual arts classes, I felt ready to apply for a $3000 scholarship and with great astonishment I won it!” – Polina Vassilieva
