An Art Educator with over 15 years of experience Rosemary Taylor has taught in a variety of diverse settings including colleges & universities, public schools, museums, private schools and foundations. She has led Professional Development programs for art educators, public school teachers, and administrators.
Rosemary has designed and facilitated Portfolio Development programs for both middle and high school students preparing portfolios for competitive arts high schools, art schools, and university admission. In the portfolio development courses students focus on skill-building in the foundations of art and design using a variety of materials. Students experiment and build fluency in techniques and art-making processes. Focus is paid to observational and conceptual development of students' work while supporting individual voice and the development of a personal visual language.

Summary of Program: Remote Portfolio Development and Consulting
Individual consulting sessions via ZOOM. The online sessions are a mix of live demos, assignments, work-time, and feedback. The programs are tailored to each students needs and portfolio requirements of schools. Online sessions generally run 2hours and can be purchased in packages of 6-12 weeks (weekly or biweekly). Students and families should be prepared for work to be done independently as developing a portfolio of work requires a commitment outside of meeting times.
Who is Portfolio Development for?
Students come from a variety of art experience backgrounds and skills and are at different points in their art educational journey. Students who benefit most from the portfolio development course are often already committed to attending an arts focused high school or college and have some background and experience in art classes.
