The Pre-College Portfolio Development Program (PDP) is designed to strengthen the foundation skills of gifted high school art students and broaden their awareness of career opportunities in the arts. Emphasis is placed on studio skills such as drawing, painting, color-theory, and sculpture.
The application period for 2016 PDP enrollment has closed. The application for 2017 will open in October 2016.
The FIA Art School offers many classes throughout the year for teens to develop their skills and strengthen their portfolios. Please contact the Art School for more information.
