This one-day-a-week course that runs from Jan to Nov 2019 will give you all you need to create an exciting and impressive portfolio, whilst gaining art foundation experience, all on the Isle of Wight.

Portfolio Preparation course

The first year of the Portfolio Preparation at Quay Arts is now complete and you can see the exciting results in a showcase exhibition at the Clayden Gallery – which runs until Sunday 16th December 2018.

As well as the exhibition, if you would like to hear more about the students’ experience of the course, there’ll be two talks alongside the work (on Saturday 8th and Saturday 15th December at 11am).
