FIA - Portfolio Development Program 

The FIA Pre-College Portfolio Development Program (PDP) is a multi-semester course of study that provides serious high school artists with college-level studio arts instruction. Visiting artists, presentations by college admissions representatives, and field trips to National Portfolio Day and prominent Michigan art schools expand the studio experience. In addition to rigorous training in drawing fundamentals, students take courses designed to expand the breadth of their skills, helping them begin to develop a personal artistic vision. Courses include painting, ceramics, welding, printmaking, glass, illustration, and photography. Students finish the program with a Capstone course, which covers final editing of their portfolios and the presentation and exhibition of their works in the Art School. Classes meet 2½ hours one evening each week for three ten-week sessions from September through May each year.
